With the growing trend in our modern society, more and more people are being diagnosed with depression and anxiety. unfortunatly, the modern trend, even within churches is to see depression and anxiety as a weakness and something that is not spoken about. As a result, many who have bee diagnosed with anxiety and depression have no where to turn, and no one to talk to. Even those who live with someone who is depressed feel that there is nowhere to turn when they really need someone.
However, Depression and anxiety comes about largely due to a chemical imbalance in the brain, and is medically treatable. So with the right medication and treatment, patients can live a normal life.
This support group serves to provide people who live with, work with, or have depression and anxiety, a forum where these issues can be discussed
Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of every month at Holy Trinity Church. (Click here for directions). Sometimes a speaker is invited, othertimes, there is an opportunity to chat about our own unique situations.
We have affiliated ourselves with the South African Depression and Anxiety Group. Check out their website for more info on who they are and how to deal with depression and anxiety
