Hello, my name is Katherine Chan and I am searching for ways to overcome anxiety and depression. I have a decided to take over the group from Michael Wilson who was the original host for this group. Michael started this group with Anne Leth when the group was born in January of 2011. I am running this group in hopes to provide people with a safe environment where they can come and gain support from some amazing people who understand just what you are going through. I am not a trained professional but just someone who has a passion to help others. I wanted to keep this group going so that I can help with others that are dealing with anxiety and depression. I feel that human interaction, discussion and experiential learning are also key to finding more happiness in life. If you are interested in coming to a place where you can find ways to effectively deal with anxiety and depression, then feel free to come by and see what we are about, but if you just want a place to dwell on your misfortune and misery, then unfortunately this will not be the right group for you. Overcoming anxiety and depression requires taking action (along with education) and that is our primary goal.
