To take a gentle stand against stigma
Our vision is one of hope. Together we strive for wellness and recovery. We seek to decrease isolation and promote unity, to decrease stigma and promote advocacy and to foster an environment filled with compassion.
The Depression and Bipolar Wellness Alliance is a Cleveland based nonprofit organization started to provide hope, help, and support to improve the lives with mental illness. DBWA pursues and accomplishes this mission through peer-based, recovery-oriented support and educational services. Community education is essential to dispel the myths surrounding mental illness.
We offer free, safe, compassionate support groups that assist members to move from illness to wellness and recovery.
