MORE ABOUT OUR PLACE HUNTSVILLE

Funding

Our Place is a 501(c)(3) organization. It is cooperatively funded by the Alabama Department of Mental Health, grants, and private donations. It is a freestanding and independently operated facility; it is planned, developed, and governed by an incorporated board of directors and Members according to Members' expressed needs and desires.

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance

Every Thursday evening from 6:00 - 7:30, Our Place hosts a meeting for the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, a support group for those with any type of mental illness.


The group is neither therapy, treatment, nor a 12-step program. Rather, it is a place for those with mental illness to share their struggles while gaining insight and understanding. The focus is on providing each other with positive and constructive feedback.
