Many people come to the Bipolar Support Group after years of struggle, programs, doctors and a long list of medications that have been tried with varying success. Some have had psychiatric hospitalizations. Many have struggled with debilitating highs and lows, both with and without medication, and have nearly given up hope of ever living a stable, happy life. But nearly every person who comes with a sincere desire to improve their life, does so. Psychotherapy is a proven treatment for Bipolar Disorder, and the power of a group of peers who are all improving together, supporting and cheering each other on - is priceless.
Our groups are witness to extraordinary successes, deep respect, and are often full of laughter.

The Santa Rosa Bipolar Support Group
"I have facilitated the Santa Rosa Bipolar Support Group for more than eight years. It is truly a labor of love and a great honor to share in the lives of such amazing people. We all have hidden gifts and un-tapped potential. I see a high number of individuals who are exceptionally bright, passionate, creative, innovative, and sensitive to the emotions and energies of other people and places. Both a blessing and a curse, these qualities can either liberate or enslave us."
