Hi, I was looking for groups in my local area and could not seem to any, however there seem to be groups for other places. I thought it would be a good idea to start one, so people can make new connections in there local area.
Looking to meet new people in hastings, age doesn't really matter but i'm 21. Get in touch !
Hi! I am new here and I realize there are no active groups in the area of Sheffield. I though it would be nice to have one. Feel free to chat about anything
Free Hand Creative Sessions are a space to be creative, for people living with depression and anxiety. We aim to provide peer support through creative activity. Free Hand holds regular creative sessions at CADS & has pop ups at different events around Sheffield. Each week we set a different task, technique or theme to the session, all materials are supplied, attendees will be given guidance but the structure is very informal and casual. Attendees are free to work on personal projects in the space as well, sometimes it can be a bit like the gym, it can be easier to work when you have a dedicated time and space. Plus, if you let us know before hand we may have some materials to help! Sessions are designed so anyone of any skill level can take part, so don’t worry about how ‘arty’ you are come and experiment with us! Whether you are stressed out, run down, depressed, anxious or live with any related mental health disorder we hope our positive and supportive atmosphere will encourage personal and artistic growth.

Hello to everybody, I hope that you coping well ,) I have been thinking to organise a monthly meet up for LGBT Friends in need people. My idea is to create an active community/group that provides, activities as such: sports, travels, theatre trips or simply coffee meet ups. I wouldn't want to exclude anybody, so everybody is welcome to join but the idea is to be LGBT friendly. This is a test group in order to see how many people would be interested. If people show interest to start with, we would meet in central London to have a chat and discuss what we could do. We could use the brain storming technique that is so fun and productive at the same time. I have lots of ideas to get out of this depressing mood that makes our lives unhappy. I know the answer, and it is Community ! Happy to hear from you guys ! Have a nice week. Carlos So, let's see if I can encourage you guys and we do something.
Im looking to make some new friends to talk to. Doesn't have to have the same interests as me but must be caring and friendly. ☺
My group is for people who have gained a lot of weight through depression and would like group support and possibly meet someone in the group whose local and can work out together.
