How We Can Help You
People liable to depression often find it helpful to talk with or meet up with others who have similar problems and offer mutual support to one another by sharing their feelings, ideas and successes.
Depression UK is a national Self Help Organisation that offers support to its several hundred members. Most suffer from depression; others may be past sufferers or care for those who have the illness.
Penfriend / Friendship
All members are welcome to join our Penfriend Scheme. This enables members to support each other and share experiences.
Visit our Friendship page for more information.
We send a free copy of the Newsletter to all our members by email (or post if they prefer) up to six times a year, which includes members’ letters, offering their experiences and ideas as to how they cope with their depression and their treatment.
Visit our Newsletter page for more information.
Members’ Zoom Meetings
We offer monthly Zoom meetings to all interested members. This is an opportunity to share in conversation and experiences, discuss topics of interest and create new friendships. We currently hold meetings once per month and these are by invitation only to registered members.
Find A Group
People liable to depression often find it helpful to join a local self-help group. You can meet up with others who have similar problems and offer mutual support to one another by sharing your feelings, ideas and successes.
Visit our Find A Group page for more information.
All members are welcome to visit our public Facebook page. This is an active community offering mutual support.
We also have a private Facebook account, available on request to members only. This enables members to support each other and share experiences.
Visit our helpful links pages where you will find details of external organisations and helpful advice and information. We have two pages, one with links to National organisations and another page with general Useful links and information.
