Self help groups
We support a national network of self help groups across England. The groups are open to anyone affected by depression and they provide a safe and welcoming space for sharing friendship, support and ideas in living with depression. Most groups are facilitated by volunteers with personal experience of depression and you’re welcome to contact the facilitator directly to find out more about their group. Self help groups aren’t the same as therapy (although they can have a therapeutic value) but they can be a fun and uplifting way to meet new friends, helping to end the isolation and loneliness of depression.
