Need to make some friends

Posted , 5 users are following.

**hi all,

not sure if anyone can guide me to any websites where i can post, and meet some similar like minded people with depression like myself.

i really need to meet some new people, as very lonely, and this can't continue.

TIA

Ben 😃

    Hi Ben,

    have you tried Meetup? It usually has some groups for people with a range of personal growth / overcoming trauma / mental health issues. And other groups for people just looking for people to meet and do stuff with, like social walking groups.

    I've also found groups advertised in some unusual places, such as finding a flyer for an anxiety group advertised at my local bar/cafe where they also meet.

    I hope you find a group near you soon.

    Hi ben and welcome !

    I like this site very much for posting and I've tried one other one that wasnt as good in my opinion. I've gleaned a lot of useful information and have been able to meet up with people like myself who share some of the same symptoms.

    Hope you decide to make use of this depression section of the Patient site and there are many other sections as well that may be useful to you.

    hi Ben, I think you've found (at least one) the right group!

    this forum is quite active, and we're all struggling with depression and/or anxiety.

    if you stick around and ask questions, you're likely to receive some good advice, or, at the very least, someone who'll listen to you!

    Good luck and welcome.

    thanks all for your kind replies.

    anyone use an app called (discord) which is free where you can chat as a group.

    thought it would be such a good thing to chat to different people about their problems, and try and make mental health not such a strain on our lives.

    please dm me for more info on the app if you would like to join it.

    with this app you can also put a lock on the chat rooms, so people cant join without putting in the correct password, or being approved by admin.
