There are many ways to get community support, but the amount of support available can vary widely. There are numerous groups: Depression/Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), Mental Health America (NMHA or MHA), Emotions Anonymous (EA), National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI). If there isn’t a group like this in your area, see about how to start one. There are numerous other groups and agencies. Mental health professionals in your area should have a good list of what’s available locally.
