How to find depression support groups
Visit the Mind website for information about support groups in your area.
If you’re a carer and affected by depression, ring the Carers Direct helpline on 0300 123 1053 to find out how to meet other carers.
Or you can ask your GP or your local psychological therapies team about depression support groups in your area.
What happens at a support group?
Sitting and talking isn’t the only thing that happens at meetings. Lots of groups organise social events and arrange special activities to help boost your mood and improve your wellbeing.
Going to a group for the first time can be daunting, but you can be sure of a warm welcome. People will understand how hard it can be to take that first step.
