SPECIAL NOTE: Due to the storm today and poor road conditions throughout Connecticut, we regret that the DBSA of Northwest Conn. won’t be meeting today, 1/4/18. We look forward to seeing you next week. And, please be careful out there!

Welcome to the DBSA of Northwest Connecticut! We are an anonymous support group for people with mood disorders, and their families and friends, in the northwest corner of Connecticut, USA.

Note: While we have professional advisors, we are a peer support group. As such, pages in this site should not take the place of professional advice from your doctor, therapist, or other credentialed mental-health provider.

Our support group meets every Thursday night (rain or shine, holidays included!), in the Small Dining Room (next to the Cafeteria) at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, Torrington CT, 6–7 pm. (See our “Getting to Us” page.) Everyone whose life is affected by depression or bipolar disorder (manic-depression) is invited!

We rarely cancel our meetings, and then only because of extreme weather conditions. Any cancellations will be announced on WZBG-FM (97.3 MHz in the Litchfield county area).


If you have any questions, please contact us:

In keeping with our support group principles, all contacts with us, whether by email, phone, or in any other way, are kept strictly confidential. No one from our group will ever get in touch with you, unless you explicitly request it. See our Privacy Policy for more information.
