Support for Depression

Support for Depression offers individuals who are experiencing or have experienced depression an opportunity to share experiences in a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere, so that they can support each other and develop coping skills.

There is no set format; the group takes the conversation where it needs to go. In fact, at their first session, participants may just sit and listen if they so choose. The group facilitators are not mental health professionals; they are trained volunteers who have experienced depression themselves and are at a point in their recovery where they want to help others learn to cope with the illness.

Interested Individuals are invited to attend at any of these locations. There is no need to pre-register.
