Hi - this group is for people to chat about anything they want. It doesn't have to be depression, the more happy topics the better!
Hi I am new here and i thought I would give this a go to meet new people that have depression that me
Anyone local out there with depression who wants to talk? I find simply chatting helps and knowing that I'm not alone in my suffering.
For anyone who lives in Derbyshire and are looking for someone who lives close for talk, walk, meet, activities and anything else we can help each other in this time.
Support for anyone in southampton and local area. Would love the chance to make friends with people local who have similar difficulties
I am looking for friends in and around Havant. I do not have any friends in Havant really and very few anywhere else. I have fibromyalgia so i am not very active and fatigue which restricts how often i can go out. I also have social anxiety which is probably why i havent made any friends. My sister says that i often come across as rude, which i completely do not mean to and i think this is why i do not have friends so i need friends who understand that about me
Hey, I'm Laila, and I'm a proud PC gamer and a very eager board/card gamer. I have depression and anxiety followed by that intense weekly panic attack so this group is for those who are on the "same boat" as yours truly that happen to be interested in gaming and possible meet ups for some board/card game action.

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 :)
