All Upcoming Meetings at our location at Our Savior's Lutheran Church (see below). We meet twice monthly—the 1st and 3rd Thursdays. Meetings are always at 7:00 PM, and we meet the 1st and 3rd Thursday even if this website has not been updated. Our next meetings are at The MARCH Center of Our Savior's Lutheran Church, 916 E 9th Ave, Denver, CO 80218. The entrance is on the lower level at the north end of the church.

Third Thursday, July 21, 2011, at 7:00 PM. Speaker and small groups. Our speaker for July is Pastor Paul Carlson. Pr.  Paul is pastor of Our Savior's Lutheran Church, and his topic is Spirituality and Recovery. Paul has had experiences with psychiatric challenges and he is skilled at leading groups with a variety of spiritual backgrounds. You won't want to miss this!

First Thursday,  August 4, 2011, at 7:00 PM.  Small groups with Tom DePetro.

Third Thursday, August 18th. Our speaker for August is Brenda Mosby. Brenda is a occupational specialist for people with disabilities. Whether you are working now or want to work, Brenda is enthusiastic about solving the every day problems that sometimes perplex us when we are working with a mood disorder. Brenda spoke for us about a year ago and has been one of our more popular speakers.

Let's Be Leaders! workshop for everyone.
We had a terrific workshop with 15 leaders. If you missed this one, there will be another one coming up in the Spring!

The group decided to keep our meetings on the first and third Thursdays as we have been doing.

We meet at The MARCH Center of Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Our  meeting space is easy to find. It's in Capitol Hill in an easily accessible and safe neighborhood. King Soopers on Downing, Einstein’s Bagel and Dazbog Coffee Shop are located just 2 and 3 blocks to the east of the church on 9th.

We are close to the Governor’s mansion and Governor’s Park in this neighborhood where people are seen walking at nearly all hours of the day and night.
Here’s the map

Here are directions once you have found Our Savior’s:

Our Savior’s is on the corner of 9th and Emerson. (915 E 9th Ave, Denver, CO 80218). We meet in The MARCH Center (formerly called Senior Center) at the north of the church on the lower level. The room is handicapped accessible with a ramp on the outside of the building.

There are two parking lots. One just north of the church, which is right next to our entrance, and the other is on the NW corner of 9th and Emerson (across the street from the church).

Is anyone welcome?

Yes, you don't have to call me to see whether we are meeting, but feel free to call if you have questions about the meeting. If any meeting is cancelled (This happened once in ten years), I will put it on the website and send an email ASAP.

If you are new to the group, just come. There is no charge but we pass the hat. Family and friends are always welcome, as well as those who have a mood disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder. The group is for adults over age 18. People who are new frequently like to call ahead with questions, and this is fine but not necessary if you are comfortable just coming.

What do we do if the weather is bad?

I always plan to be at the church, no matter what the weather except for when all of Denver shuts down. This means the schools, (ALL schools, not just Denver), AND businesses AND the airport. The only time we cancelled a meeting for weather during the past ten years was in 2001 when it snowed 4 feet in March. Please decide for yourself whether it is safe for you to drive or walk to the meeting. Some of our best meetings are those with smaller attendance when the weather is bad.

We are a DBSA Chapter!

Our group is a member of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance. To learn more about DBSA, a national network of recovery groups, see their website.
