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 :-)

Chat n meet group Berkshire/South East

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.

New Friends

Hi I'm Kat, I'm 31 and recently divorced and suffer from recurring bouts of depression. I'm looking to meet similar people for friendship and hoping to form a group of like minded people that can meet up in the real world. Hopefully we can all support each other through the difficult times.
