Group Name: Canadian Mental Health Association – Support For Depression
Description: Support for Depression offers individuals who are experiencing or have experienced depression an opportunity to share experiences in a safe, non-judgemental atmosphere, so that they can support each other and develop coping skills. There is no set format: the group takes the conversation where it needs to go. In fact, at their first session, participants may just sit and listen if they so choose. The group facilitators are not mental health professionals; they are trained volunteers who have experienced depression and are at a point in their lives where they want to help others learn to cope with this illness.
