Coffee or drink in Leicestershire

I'm struggling at the moment with my depression. Constantly feeling low and alone. I've gone through a lot in the past 2 months with family and being forced out of home to live somewhere on my own that I can't really afford aswell as all the other stresses of bills etc. It would be nice to get out and talk to people who have the same low, alone feeling that I do.
