What we're about
The first rule of survival is: you need a support system. And when one is struggling with depression, it's particularly hard to build one. It is my hope that this group could be a beginning. If you're in Brooklyn and dealing with your darkness, this group is for you. It is meant to share stories, tips on overcoming this illness and information about how to find reliable and affordable treatments, but also for enjoying common interest and organizing useful distractions for each other.
A note from your humble organizer: I would like this group to be particularly welcoming and accessible to those who don't have a lot of disposable income and can't afford fancy paid counseling or retail therapy.
