DBSA National

Mental health is all around us, but it's often misunderstood.

Here is some quick info to help demystify what we mean by "mental health" and how to talk about it.

We are living in troubled times. Owing to the current health crisis, but Rockland DBSA is alive and well. As Dominican College will not be available for our weekly meetings for the foreseeable future, we are meeting virtually through the Zoom Video Platform. The meetings, of course, are open to everyone who wishes to participate. Call Tony at 845-422-2084 for further information or if you wish to hop on with us.

In the meantime, should you feel the need to speak about your anxieties, depression, mood swings, etc., please feel free to utilize the Contact List that can be accessed by clicking into the Newsletter Section.

Do not hesitate to pick up the telephone if you feel the need.

Stay Healthy!


We’ve been there. We can help.

Together we share and seek understanding and acceptance of the situations surrounding Bipolar Disorder, Depression, other Mood Disorders and Dual Diagnosis. Through frank and open discussion, compassion, real and true support, the members of the Rockland Chapter of DBSA have come together to create a cohesive unit that is vibrant and alive and offers hope and the means to help people help themselves.

This group should be a welcomed part of your wellness program, and if you are a family member, or friend of an individual dealing with a Mood Disorder the same applies.

Peer-to-Peer support is a proven path to recovery and wellness

If you are looking for a place, for people who truly want to help you help yourself to change your life, waste no more time, look no further, we’d love to meet you.
