What we're about

Founded in 2007 by Hannah Dawnielle on MySpace, Defeat Depression was originally started for teens and young adults struggling with depression to find a safe, online, haven.

Since our start in 2007 our mission has changed; we are now known worldwide for helping anyone with any mental illness. We support those struggling both online and offline in a support group that meets in the Central Florida area.

Our goal is that those that come into contact with Defeat Depression would find a safe haven; that those struggling would feel free to be themselves in a stigma free environment.

Group Meeting

Needs a location

We're set for another group meeting! :) The meeting space is at a church, however you do NOT have to be a Christian to attend. We just chose to use a church simply because they usually let groups (like us) use their meeting spaces for free. For this meeting we'll be in ROOM 15. You can park on the EAST side of the church by Fellowship Hall. Please be there right at 1:30PM! We start promptly! **If you have any questions or concerns please email me to let me know at [masked]**
