Description:
Depression
We Am Blue
Depression Support Together!

This is a members only support group and information community with an edge of humour for major depressive disorders and similar conditions. We are all living with depression in some manner and the resources we share are meant to enable a better quality of life and understanding while we battle our blues. It's okay to smile through the darkness...

We are particularly open to people aged 18+ or family members of individuals suffering through:

Major Depression
Dysthymic disorder
Psychotic depression
Postpartum depression
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
Bipolar disorder/Manic Depression/Cyclothomia
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Anxiety Phobia Disorders
Borderline Personality Disorder
Atypical Depression
Schizoaffective Disorder.


We do not deal with depression in children and adolescents.
