Depression Support Group

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. Depression is more than a low mood or a feeling of sadness at a loss. It is a serious medical condition which causes both physical and psychological symptoms which is detected, can be treated using a range of effective treatment approaches.

Our support group for depression sessions offer sufferers and carers the opportunity to discuss their depression and help them learn how to deal with their fears, knowing they are not alone. Through group discussion we focus on the symptoms of depression and how to manage them to promote better mental health. The caring and sharing of the group offers relief from isolation and loneliness. We encourage family members and friends to attend the sessions in order to gain enough awareness about the illness and how to support their loved ones.
