This group is for young women in the NYC/NJ area who have been diagnosed and/or struggle with any kind of mental illness or disorder. A peer support group, NYC Depression Support For Young Women is a safe space to socialize in casual settings with others who can relate to your struggles.
Group meetings will be held up to twice a month, where we can gather together and chat over how things are going for us. Activities will range from picnics/food outings, happy hour, bowling, movie nights, etc.
Though this is a group for mental health support, if you are having an emergency or need long term support, please see a professional. Helpful websites and resources will be provided via a link very soon.
If there are any topics that are a trigger for you, please feel free to let us know and we will be respectful of your triggers.
PLEASE NOTE: While the group is for women in their"20's and 30's," the age range is somewhat loose. If anyone in their late teens are interested for instance, they are more than welcome to join. The term "women" is also used loosely, as gender fluid and genderqueer individuals are welcome as well.
