Aware Defeat Depression will be opening up a weekly Support Group in the Newcastle Centre, Newcastle on Thursday 13 February 2014 at 7pm. 

The Support Group is free of chrage to attend and welcomes anyone with depression, male and female; as well as the family, friends and carers of those with depression. The group will then run fortnightly on a Thursday at 7pm.

Support Services Manager for Aware Defeat Depression, Andy Sims said,

 

“The purpose of a support group is to bring together people experiencing similar problems, so that through identifying with them, they can support and be supported by others. Enabling people to learn more about their illness and the alternative treatments available will help them to develop coping skills.

 

“The meetings are very informal. After brief introductions, individuals may talk about their experiences, share information and ask questions. No member is obliged to speak however, and short periods of silence are normal.”
