This is a group designed for people who have a passion for theatre, opera and film. I like to have a different show, opera or film we could see as a group each month. This could include trips to local cinemas or theatres as well as central London. Smart appearance appreciated.
Hi! I am new here and I realize there are no active groups in the area of Sheffield. I though it would be nice to have one. Feel free to chat about anything
I've been looking around but I didn't find any group for Glaswegians, so I decided to create one.
Free Hand Creative Sessions are a space to be creative, for people living with depression and anxiety. We aim to provide peer support through creative activity. Free Hand holds regular creative sessions at CADS & has pop ups at different events around Sheffield. Each week we set a different task, technique or theme to the session, all materials are supplied, attendees will be given guidance but the structure is very informal and casual. Attendees are free to work on personal projects in the space as well, sometimes it can be a bit like the gym, it can be easier to work when you have a dedicated time and space. Plus, if you let us know before hand we may have some materials to help! Sessions are designed so anyone of any skill level can take part, so don’t worry about how ‘arty’ you are come and experiment with us! Whether you are stressed out, run down, depressed, anxious or live with any related mental health disorder we hope our positive and supportive atmosphere will encourage personal and artistic growth.
I have just joined this group and am looking to talk to and meet friends and those suffering with depression in the Leeds area, a safe place to discuss with one an other and be a support to those sharing their experience of depression.
Just want to connect with other people who are feeling like me so I don't feel so damn lonely all the time. Maybe arrange meet ups because there doesn't seem to be much in the area

I can’t believe I came across this site it’s brilliant...I think it was fate I don’t feel so alone here
I wasn’t sure about this site when I joined up, but I must say I’m really pleased I did, because there appears to be some really lovely, caring people here with loads of time to chat and give you a boost. I find talking online really helpful- especially when you can’t deal with face to face
