New Specialized Support Group at DBSA Albuquerque

DBSA Albuquerque has launched a new support group. The group is for people who suffer from depression or bipolar disorder, or related disorders (anxiety, OCD) and who have had or might have difficulty attending our regular groups because of inability to understand or participate using the eight guidelines for group conduct.

The particular guideline some have had trouble with, so far, is “one person speaks at a time and the rest listen actively”. Though we will be safe and keep order in the group, there will be room to learn to use the guidelines, and plenty of acceptance while doing so.

Pussible attendees might be people with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Developmental Delay, or Schizophrenia. We are open to other possibilities.

We will have two facilitators in this group each week and we meet each Wednesday at Trinity United Methodist Church (enter at the Southwest door) at 6:45 – 7:00 pm. Group is over at 8:00. All this is just starting out, and we will give it time to see if there is interest and if it is beneficial to the participants.
