Hampshire Support

I would like to dedicate this group to finding like-minded people in the local area. I think many of you will agree that your struggles are less daunting if you have someone who understands you. About the group: My aim is to just get local people in touch with one another, maybe find some common ground. I would like to be able to set up meet ups eventually but hey, one step at a time! I hope that others will find some comfort here.

Let's explore London!

Hi i'm Lukas! I'm from coulsdon which is greater london (Not far off Croydon which may be more of a known area?) and i like travelling. I spend a lot of my free time going up to London and exploring all it has to offer. I like to walk around new areas, go to the parks, museums, see the sights, attractions etc. If anyone would be interested in meeting up wether one on one or as a small group to do some day activitivies then please let me know! I am more prone to starting earlier rather then afternoon but i'm flexible. We can arrange all the details when we have enough people :)

Looking for friends in County Durham

Hi all.. I'm John I'm 32 and I've been suffering with depression and horrendous anxiety for many many years. It's so hard to meet new people and move forward when we feel the way we do so hopefully this group will help us to interact, help each other when we're feeling low, let of steam and hopefully meet, arrange days out together and start new friendships. Anyone welcome :-)


Trying to meet new friends

Trying to meet new people to talk to since things have been quite difficult lately and whenever I try to discuss how I'm feeling with friends they think I'm just acting like this for attention or because things are going my way.

North East region, Anyone Interested?

Hi, Sort of wanted to spearhead a movement for the North East as I find there is not much support out there for this region (possibly speaking for myself but I'm geordie and stubborn!) anyone interested in talking, meeting up, listening or anything at all then drop me a message. New to this but we are all on here for similar reasons so don't be scared to get in touch. Cheers.
