The aim of the group is for anyone who suffers socially to make some new friends, improve social skills, gain confidence and provide a friendly setting.

The group is open to people who have an anxiety disorder, depression disorder, or a mental health problem.

It is free to attend the group but for certain activities such as cinema, bowling , and eating/drinking out. You will be required to pay for yourself.

social events are arranged by myself and co-organizer(s), types of meetups are varied such as going to the cinema, bowling, walks, days out, coffee, pubs, eating out etc. Members are more than welcome to suggest meet ups that they would find more comfortable to take part in.

It is understandable that the anxiety of attending the first meet up can be overwhelming. And there is no pressure if you struggle to make a meet up or do not feel up to it . Just attend when you feel ready, and if you would like some assistance or support then please contact me. : )

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
