“… Joining a self-help group will be one of the most valuable things you can do. You will meet a group of people who know what it is to be depressed. You don’t have to explain it to them, or apologize, or pretend that you are happy when you are not. In a self-help group you give and receive friendship and in sharing the responsibility for the group you build up your confidence and self respect.
Well, those are some ideas about where you can get help provided you’re prepared to go and find it and to work hard with what you are offered. Spoon – feeding is no use to you. You have to feed yourself.”
