Mood Disorders Support Group

Mood disorders can be referred as a condition where the mind is disturbed to an extent where it becomes difficult to function in relationships or at work. Mood disorder can cause a person to withdraw from social contact or hide their real feelings from their friends or loved ones. Depression is the commonest disturbance of mood. It is an illness in which the sense of sadness is all pervasive, and there is a constant presence of hopelessness. Feelings of worthlessness, inadequacy and incompetence hound the person who is depressed.

Activities and interests, once pleasurable and stimulating, become stale. Depressed persons isolate themselves by withdrawing from their friends and family members. Work habits may deteriorate, and the depressed person is often very easily fatigued and there may be indecisiveness and slowed thinking, difficulty in concentrating and poor memory.

Sufferers as well as carers are welcome to share their experiences with other members of the group. Discussing
your experiences with others can help you learn more about the management of the disorder and how to better deal with it. Our aim is to help improve the quality of life and general well-being of the participants. The caring and sharing of the group offers relief from isolation and loneliness.
