-For questions regarding specific events, please message their respective organizer.
It's quiet right now, so anyone has the option to make an event. If you are going for a walk one day; perhaps invite others?
This group was primarily created for sufferers of social anxiety. Events were few and far between in the South and there did not seem enough people available for a support structure to be formed. Partly to help overcome the member shortage problem: the group had been extended to welcome pretty much all types of anxiety sufferers as I am sure we would find commonalities with each other.
The main motivation for the group was to try to prevent isolation of people going through painful times. The amount of people with some types of mental health issues dwarf those with others and it can sometimes be difficult to cater for everyone, especially those of us with social anxiety. I encourage anyone who wants to organise gatherings for more specific issues to do so; or if you want to just do more general events for depression and anxiety which we all share to some extent: message me and good luck.
Any ethnicity, sexual orientation and age 18+ is accepted of course. Hopefully we can all recover as a group and create some good memories together.
I set the group up to run without any one particular person needing to be in control, at least as humanly as that is possible. Many of us have personalities that enjoy either leading or following. In general, this is fine for both the individual and society. However when it comes to having mental health problems, it really isn't healthy to find someone to lead you. I recommend finding a good therapist that will help you empower yourself. All we can offer is advice and a relaxed place to chat or just to be around others.
. Some of us are more talkative, which is natural and fine; but it is important to at least try and listen to others. Nobody is allowed to completely dominate our social time, making it much harder for others to express themselves.
