Hi and welcome to Social Anxiety Disorder, Depression & Introversion Friends!
We are a meetup support group for people who suffer from social anxiety and/or depression as well as introverts who seek friendship.
If you suffer from social anxiety, the goal is to put ourselves in social situations so we can slowly work towards being comfortable with socialising.
If you need support to cope with your depression, being with others who are also going through a similar condition can help to reduce any feelings of isolation and hopelessness you may have.
