COUNT Discussion Meeting: Depression Exploration

Many people suffer from depression. Let's discuss depression as the holidays and gloomy winter days approach. Are atheists more prone to depression? Is so, why? If not, why? If you don't participate in holiday activities does the isolation get you down? Why or why not? What else can we focus on that is positive? What are some ways in which we can support members of our community who may be suffering? What are some ideas as to how we can reduce depression now that the winter months are coming? Share your stories. Share your ideas. Let's make the next few months the very best that they can be.

After our talk on the discussion topic, we would love to spend time hanging out, having a few more drinks, and getting to know one another.

Atheist, agnostics, other non-theists, and atheist-friendly people are welcome to join us.

    One topic led to another and there were lots of laughs. we didn't leave until after 10. I think we could have chatted all night if not for work the next day.

    Sorry folks. Sick, and could probably drag myself there—but you don't want to catch this.

    I will try to be there. It depends on how tired I am when I get home from work. I had to find my own traditions on holidays many years ago, because spending them with my family was so stressful. I was surprised to discover that I could be very happy without them. The meaning of holidays is sharing with people you care about and that care about you. Those people don't have to be related by blood.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
