Peer Support

The DBTB Peer Support Group is a peer led support that provides a safe and confidential place to talk. We are here to Listen and direct you to the most appropriate community resources. Our focus is on family members of D.R.P.S. members.

DBTB Peer Support is not monitored 24/7 and does not provide immediate support.
If you require immediate support or are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911 or contact your local crisis line at 1-800-452-0688, family doctor, or go to the nearest hospital.

If you are a DRPS member and you need to talk to someone right now, please take a look at DRCISST.
