ABOUT US...

The Depression Support Network Inc. (Toowoomba) also known as DSN.A small group of concerned citizens met in May 2006 at Jilly’s Café to discuss the support available in Toowoomba for sufferers of depression and their families.We discovered through our research that depression support services in Toowoomba could be enhanced. We wanted to fill gaps in services as we understood them.Since May 2006, a very committed and growing band of Toowoomba citizens, including all mental illness sufferers and health professionals, has met regularly to fashion a Peer Support Network which we believe is desperately needed.We have established a resource centre and regular support groups. Workshops, forums and training courses on understanding and managing mental illness are held regularly.

DSN is a community organisation that is led and managed by peers. We provide peer support  in the Toowoomba Region to those affected by a mental illness, together with those in their circle of care.At DSN, we value:

  • Friendship & Belonging
  • The worth of each Individual
  • Community
  • Respect
  • Compassion & Care
  • Recovery
  • Hope, and
  • Support

We improve the quality of life of those affected by a mental illness by encouraging hope, coping skills, resources, education and by reducing stigma and discrimination.
