Laura Riordan was born and raised in Media and now lives here with her modern Brady Bunch of 6 kids (and a puppy!) She helps to facilitate a local, peer led, mental health support group, DBSA Delaware County, that meets at Riddle Hospital every Monday evening. DBSA, the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, is a national organization and we’re proud to have a local chapter right here in Media that has been serving the area for over 20 years.
Laura published an article with a local Philly based non profit, OC87 Recovery Diaries, about how support groups have helped her own journey to wellness. Her blog and instagram, Taming the Bipolar Beast, share her experiences and the strategies she’s uncovered to living well with mental health challenges.
Please feel free to reach out to Laura or find additional information on the support group site. It’s ok to not be ok. The holidays can be an especially challenging time and we want you to reach out or share this information with a loved one who may need it.
