Group Name: Equilibrium-Oakville- Depression and Bipolar Disorder
Description: Equilibrium, founded in 1991, is a peer support group for individuals and their families who are affected by a mood disorder. Their purpose is to gain a better understanding of the illness, to offer non-judgemental support and to share experiences. No registration or membership is required. All those affected by a mood disorder are welcomed. Just show up.
People are welcomed on arrival by a core group member, who provides them with literature. The meeting lasts from an hour to an hour and a half and is usually attended by 25-35 people. The importance of confidentiality is emphasised at the beginning of every meeting. People attending an Equilibrium meeting for the first time generally sit back and listen. However, they are invited to share their thoughts if they wish. There is no cost to attend meetings or borrow books/videos. Operating costs are covered by donations at meetings.
