Founded in 1996, meetings began at Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill, PA. Today, DBSA Delaware County is the leading Chapter in Southeastern Pennsylvania. We are grateful for our members support throughout these 26+ years!
Serving the Delaware and Chester County area, as well as the wider Delaware Valley, we attribute our reputation and growth to the tireless efforts of our all volunteer peer staff, who promote self-help and mentor our members over the years.
We believe that all of our members deserve the highest level of support and understanding of mood disorders, assisting them in recovery and stability alongside the therapeutics of their Doctor and Therapist.

CHAPTER MEETINGS-WHAT ARE THEY LIKE?
Zoom Online meetings continue as of April 2023, with 4/10 & 4/24 physical meetings at our Host facility
Open to all regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, age, immigration status, orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, or disability.
We begin with a check in - a simple "how was your week" intro from each person. For new members, you tell us as much as you wish, or simply observe, but this helps us understand your issues better. Each week we share our progress or our setbacks. We respond only from our own perspective...our commonality is broad, but everyone is different.
The second hour brings more open discussion, perhaps a topic, things on your mind...but also time to bring our new folks better understanding and friendly support.
We by no means replace your doctor/therapist, and we do not participate as credentialed professionals - we don't instruct or advise - DBSA is unique and the model is proven that members who attend support meetings like ours stay compliant and stable longer.
