NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) has a support group that might be of benefit to you or to someone you know. Here is the information directly from NAMI.
NAMI Connection, a support group for adults (of any age) who have been diagnosed with any mental illness meets every Tuesday, 6:30 -8:00 pm in Room 6 at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center, 10431 Twin Rivers Rd., Columbia 21044. NAMI Connection is based on a recovery model where individuals who live with serious mental illnesses share experiences in a safe, confidential environment and support each other. It is not a therapy group. It is led by peers who have been trained to facilitate a support group.
