We are currently holding hybrid meetings for the peer support groups (Thursdays and Saturdays), which means there is an option to join the meeting in person, virtually through Google Meet, or through the phone. In-person, virtual and phone participants are combined in the same meeting. We request that anyone joining a meeting in person is fully vaccinated and wears a mask throughout the meeting.
The Friends and Family Group held on Tuesdays is currently only meeting virtually, not in person.
Information about meeting in person is below. For links to join virtually or with any additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
DBSA Heart of Chicago Chapter is currently offering three support groups:
Our atmosphere is open-minded, friendly, and non-judgmental. All information discussed is confidential and meetings are led by peers (other people who are recovering from an illness).
All are welcome at our support groups. However, to protect privacy and enable people to speak freely, we do not allow casual observers, clinicians, or students to attend our meetings.
