Crawley friends in need

Hey my names Rachel I'm 26 and I've recently moved to Crawley for a new job which was going great until my depression took a turn for the worst and it's doing its best to interfere with every single day. I have been suffering with depression for a while on and off but recently I've noticed changes in myself and my behaviour which worry me and I could really do with talking to people going through the same. Please join :)

Women's group London

Thought it would be nice to start up a girly group :) We could meet up for tea, spa days, dinner etc! Something different each week to meet new people and generally lift each others spirits.

Geeky stuff lovers with Depression

This is a group for manga, anime, gaming, film and TV show lovers. This is a place where we can chat about the things we love, talk about our problems and feelings, about what makes us sad or angry. I hope that by finding people to talk to who share common interests we can make good friendships, talk about what we love and make each other smile. Hopefully we can also have meet ups around London, and get to make new friends who have similar interests and problems.

South London friends

For people living anywhere in South London who want to chat or even meet up locally. Just friendly folk.

Glasgow Meet Up 2018

Hey all, there does not seem to be any active Glasgow Meet Up groups, not that i can find so thought i would start this one. We can discuss and chat about it in this group and see if anyone is interested in a friendly meet up for coffee (or tea) and maybe make it something regular. :-)

Others in Edinburgh, Borders, Glasgow

I noticed there wasn't many groups or meet ups in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Scottish borders and was hoping we could maybe organise a Scottish meet up. Im abby by the way :)

Anyone from Glasgow?

I've been looking around but I didn't find any group for Glaswegians, so I decided to create one.
