Knowing that I wasn’t going through this alone...that was my first breakthrough.

   Depression and bipolar disorder can be isolating illnesses. Chattanooga Pendulums support group can help you connect with others who have been there as well. Meetings are always free. We meet weekly on Thursday nights at 6:30PM. Visit us and get the support that is essential to recovery. You will be glad you did!

   No one with depression or bipolar disorder needs to feel alone or ashamed. There is a grassroots network of DBSA chapters and support groups, including a support group in the Chattanooga area.  The group has a professional advisor and appointed facilitators.  Members include people and loved ones of people living with depression or bipolar disorder.  As a complement to formal therapy, DBSA support groups:

  • Can help increase treatment compliance and may help patients avoid hospitalization.
  • Provide a forum for mutual acceptance, understanding, and self-discovery.
  • Help people understand that mood disorders do not define who they are.
  • Give people the opportunity to benefit from the experiences of those who have “been there.”

       Take the next step to wellness for you or someone you love!
