About Us

Our Story

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.

Serving the Delaware and Chester County area, 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.

Explore the rest of our site to learn more about what we have to offer, and get in touch with any questions. DBSA Delaware County Chapter is here for you.


Chapter Meetings-What are they like?

Primarily online - occasionally physical outside gatherings

DBSA Delaware County, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit incorporated in the 

State of Illinois

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 so we understand your issues better. Each week we share our progress or our setbacks, knowing you've got a group of empathetic folks listening and ready to help. 

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 guidance.

We by no means replace your doctor/therapist, and this is not a 12-step or other form of recovery. DBSA is unique and the model is proven that patients who attend support meetings like ours stay compliant and stable longer.


We will respond to your VM and messages within 24 hours
