Anyone else from Exeter or Devon area? Would be cool to meet some like-minded people nearby, especially roughly my age (20) :D

Make new friends and get out of the house...

I'm lonely and in need of some friends and support. .. would be great to have a group in which we can arrange meet ups and talk over the phone. Any one is welcome


Just Chat

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!

Cumbria Hangout

Just a place for Cumbrian Fin users to hangout and swap experiences and hopefully as the group grows we can arrange meets, trips out, coffee meets walks all that jazz. I look forward to hearing from you Marras and Marraeses :@P

New Friends in London

If you're lonely in London and want to connect with new people with new energy, perspectives, ideas etc., then join this group. It's such a nice big city with lots of fun things to do rather than just sitting home sad and lonely. Let's make friends!

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.
