Do you suffer from Depression, or similar, and need Support?

I am organizing the second of two Charity Table-Top Sales, at Wesley Hall, on Saturday morning, 23 February, to help raise funds for, promote awareness of, and reduce stigma of, mental illness and its Charities - in this event, The Samaritans and Rethink, both used locally.

At the event, there is a table with information on Mental Illness, such as Depression, with details on Helplines, Support available, etc.

If you suffer from depression, or know of anyone that does, please do come along and help support this fundraiser.  Not only is there an "Information Table", but also a varied selection of lovely items for sale, and hot drinks and cakes to sample.

PLEASE NOTE:  I am NOT a Mental Health Worker, and cannot deal with "official", "medical" or "professional" advice relating to this, but I can provide you with non-invasive information and leaflets that will be provided for you on this "Information Table".

Thank you; we look forward to seeing you all there.

It's a very worthwhile cause.  It's amazing how many people are affected by depression.  Two of my work colleagues are affected, and several years ago, I went through depression for about 3.5 years.  The good thing is that more people are aware of it these days.  It's important to realise that the medication for depression has lots of side effects, for example sleepless nights, difficulty getting our of bed, wondering what am I doing here, feeling like an alien.
It's important to be surrounded by people who give you HOPE.
I found psychodrama very helpful, along with counselling and especially prayer.
Psychodrama helps you to come to terms with the past, and it's truly amazing to discover people in your group who have experienced similar things to you, it's like they are acting out your story.

Counselling is good, but you need to be honest if your want to see results.  Some people will cry, and that's very good, because it's part of the healing process.

Prayer has no side effects, and the changes can be very quick, and life changing.
I hope you find this useful.
