We're a small and friendly group that meets once a month in the Earls Court area. We get together to talk, listen and share ideas together about living with depression and anxiety. No judgments and nothing scary, just a welcoming place to come for a cuppa and a chat, where you can be yourself and share support with others who understand. The group meets on the first Monday of the month at at 6:30pm. Please email email@example.com for more information and the dates and venues of meetings.

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.
- We meet up each day in the Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead area. - We have a monthly timetable showing our activities such as: art, crafts, model making, walking, visiting our Landshare, a reading group, bowling and wellbeing groups. - We meet in the evenings too! Why not try our quiz night, games night, music night or cinema night. - How about a day trip with us? - It's also a place where you can just pop along to meet new people and have a chat and a cuppa!

I wasn’t sure about this site when I joined up, but I must say I’m really pleased I did, because there appears to be some really lovely, caring people here with loads of time to chat and give you a boost. I find talking online really helpful- especially when you can’t deal with face to face
