About Us

The Depression Connection for Recovery (a non-profit) was created in 2000. It began with the mental health diagnosis of Bipolar for retired Methodist Minister Tony Campbell. As Tony began his journey towards recovery with his diagnosis, he found there were no depression support groups in Tarrant County. Tony began to find so many others who were also struggling with depression and anxiety that could use group support to Aid in their Recovery and Wellness. With colleagues, and friends and other health professionals he put together a team to lead support groups in Fort Worth and Tarrant County. This team consists of Tony as the Executive Director, an Administrative Assistant, a Community Liaison, Recovery Support Peer Specialists, and a Board of Directors.

We now have support groups in Fort Worth, North Richland Hills, Grapevine, and Arlington.

In addition to our community based Depression/Bipolar Support Groups we have seen an ever growing need to provide mental health services to (4) population specific groups in Fort Worth and Tarrant County. The groups are: The Homeless, College Students, Veterans and Clinical Settings.

We have begun adding the following groups:
