What people say about us
Being with others who have a shared experience of depression is helpful because people there have lower expectations of me, they are less judgemental than others and we help each other, by sharing our experiences of depression and anxiety. The groups don’t make demands of me and that helps when I’m depressed – I have problems with personal obligation. Coming out to the meet-ups reduces my isolation and keeps me active. By helping others, I feel like I am helping myself.
After having therapy with Community Living Well I feel a lot better in myself, much more settled and comfortable. Getting things off my chest and having someone who would listen to me was very beneficial as I felt like I had been living in my own head. I was aware of techniques such as writing things down and talking to people I trusted but these weren’t actions that I had ever implemented in the past.
