Starting in 2000 as a small support group for those coping with mental health symptoms, this group known as "Carl Brown's Mad Dog Army" met weekly at a local library. Eventually, the group sought a charter with the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), a nonprofit, peer-directed organization bringing together people with depression and bipolar disorder for support and networking. Now as the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance of Louisville, we help reach millions of people each year with in‐person and online peer support through a network of more than 300 chapters. We provide current, understandable information about depression and bipolar disorder and empowering tools focused on an integrated approach to wellness. DBSA Louisville has been providing services to the Kentuckiana area for over 15 years, and strives to find new ways to reach, teach and support our community.
