Just looking to chat with fellow sufferers in the local area
I'm lonely and in need of some friends and support. .. would be great to have a group in which we can arrange meet ups and talk over the phone. Any one is welcome
Is anyone here from Oxford and would they like to meet up for peer to peer support? Maybe a film evening, a restaurant dinner once a month etc....?
Chat here. Chat together. I will organise a space where we can meet up, and maybe run this like a supper club - meet eat n chat. Only rule is we all accept each other, I say that as I have been cared for but never truly accepted with my depression. Anyone from anywhere could come. Lets chat here first then if it looks good we'll meet.
The group is aimed at meeting like-minded people for friendship. I would like to make friends who understand social anxiety and depression. I am a very supportive and kind person and would like to make friends who could support and be there for me too. I'm in my 20's from London. Near Woodford. I would like to meet people near North and East London as well as maybe Essex and Hertfordshire. We could chat online and meet in real life when we feel comfortable.
Just trying to start a group for people local to Oxford, would be good to make some good friends and meet up from time to time
A group for Mum's & Dad's supporting each other through the highs & lows of parenting and family life, whilst managing depression/anxiety/other...
As I couldn't find a group in the South Lakes/Lancaster area I thought I'd have a go at starting one. Anyone interested can make suggestions about what theme we go for... Maybe self help in the future...
Hoping some of you might like to meet up in central London for a drink or a meal and make a group of friends that meet up regularly to brighten up the cold dark evenings with neon lights and some fun
Sorry, there are no locations to map
...a place you can be yourself without fear you’re being judged or told how you should act when you’re feeling depressed
I can’t believe I came across this site it’s brilliant...I think it was fate I don’t feel so alone here
I wasn’t sure about this site when I joined up, but I must say I’m really pleased I did, because there appears to be some really lovely, caring people here with loads of time to chat and give you a boost. I find talking online really helpful- especially when you can’t deal with face to face
