What we're about

We have created this group for anyone who suffers from any level of anxiety all depression and wants to form new social connections and friendships. We will be arranging a number of different activities and social events to make some fond memories and hopefully overcome our difficulties as a group. If you would like to be an organiser in the group please contact me.

If you have any thoughts on activities to do then please get in contact.

There is a secret Facebook group for members of this meetup to keep contact and discuss activities between meetups, to join message the organiser with your email address.

Please, if you need to contact another member of the meetup, including organisers, only do so through the Meetup site unless you .have their explicit permission to contact them by another channel. In particular, be aware that people keep different hours so sending someone multiple messages late at night or early in the morning may just exacerbate their struggles.

Also, this not intended to be a dating group, please don't use it as such.

If another member is posting harmful comments in the group then please contact the organiser (Stephen Booth) via the site with where the comments are and who is making them. I'll look into it at my first opportunity. Depending on the comments the member may be blocked from the group.
