Depression Xpression is a peer-led social support group for anyone who may be feeling anxious, sad, isolated or depressed. 

The group is open to all, and is confidential and non-judgemental.  You do not need to be referred by anyone.

You are welcome to join our private Facebook Support Group.

For anyone unable to attend our in-person meetings, we will continue to host our online Zoom support group on the third and fourth Monday of the month at 7.00pm. Everyone is welcome and no booking is required. We have also created a WhatsApp group and a Facebook Messenger group for you to keep in touch and share your concerns.

Please join our Facebook Support Group to gain access to these resources. If you’re not on Facebook, you can request further details through our contact form.
