This is a group where people with anxiety and depression can offer each other friendship and support.
I have been running this group since July 2014. I believe there is a need for an informal mutual support group for depression and anxiety locally, as I previously had to travel in to London to find this type of group. The group was created for Mid Bedfordshire (Ampthill, Flitwick, Bedford, Luton) and the surrounding area but we welcome members from any area.
This is a group where people can support each other and have social contact without pressure, as a lot of us feel isolated. We meet up for walks, pub meets, lunches, coffee meets, and other activities. Our activities are usually free or low cost and any charges made for meet-ups are to cover costs only.
This is your group. Please feel free to add your own meet-ups or let me know of any suggestions you have for activities or any other aspect of the group. This group can't offer any professional help and I have social anxiety disorder myself so please bear with me.
PLEASE NOTE: We want this to be a safe, supportive and respectful environment, so please treat other group members with respect. Please do not join this group to promote services or activities for profit or to take advantage of our members in any other way. If you have any concerns about your experiences related to the group please let one of the organisers know.
All members take part in group activities at their own risk.
