Sadly the Side by Side project has come to an end. I would like to thank all of you who took part in the evaluation into the benefits of peer support. you have been part of the biggest ever study into its benefits and hopefully it will provide us with some research that will fund more community mental health services in the future. There will no longer be any activity in this group however do keep a look out for things in the Plymouth area and depression peer support will continue under the umbrella of Plymouth Mind.
- We meet up each day in the Windsor, Ascot and Maidenhead area. - We have a monthly timetable showing our activities such as: art, crafts, model making, walking, visiting our Landshare, a reading group, bowling and wellbeing groups. - We meet in the evenings too! Why not try our quiz night, games night, music night or cinema night. - How about a day trip with us? - It's also a place where you can just pop along to meet new people and have a chat and a cuppa!
A meet up group for those living around Cambridge/East Anglia. We have had our first meet up and hope to have more in the near future. Let me know what types of activities you would like to do and I can see what I can arrange.

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
