We're Mind, the mental health charity. We provide advice and support to anyone with a mental health problem. We're continuing to run Friends in Need and to support Depression Alliance's self-help groups. We can offer you advice and support on depression, too.

Friends in Need

At Depression Alliance we strive to end the loneliness and isolation that comes with depression. We bring people together to make them happier through groups, events, publications and now through Friends in Need.

What is Friends in Need?
Friends in Need is a supportive community for people living with depression. It is a place where you can connect with others online, through this website, and in your local area.

How does it work?
It only takes a minute to register through the secure and confidential site and then you will have full access to the Friends in Need community.

You can:
Help others make sense of their experiences by sharing your own. Set up or join groups where you can chat about whatever interests you. Attend meet ups in your local area.
