Meet up with other people who are coping with depression, bi-polar, anxiety, PTSD and other emotional issues  for a safe place to share your struggles, exchange ideas, get that all important support and being accepted. You can escape for a moment with people who understand where you are because we've all been there. You may not feel good when you get there, but chances are you will feel stronger when you leave! This meetup is about going beyond mere survival to beating the beast of depression, PTSD and other emotional illnesses to finding your joy. We do not take roll and there's no sign-up sheet. There is no charge to join or to attend meetings, though we do pass the hat for voluntary donations to meet our expenses. We want to make you feel comfortable. We want you to know you're in a safe place to share your experiences and pain and to explore ways to recovery.

A special invitation to our soldiers and their families to join us and get the support you need. This is a good place for you to heal in with no concerns about your privacy. You can sign up with just your first name or a pseudo to further ensure your privacy. Our discussions are confidential. What is said in the group stays in the group. We care about you and want to help!


Take care and Start Living!
