Benefits of Depression Support Groups

  • Depression support groups can help you realize that you are not alone with the problems you’re experiencing. An example of this is when Yalom had members of his process groups to be vulnerable. He asked them to write the one thing that they wouldn’t share, similar themes emerged. Overall, most people felt alienated and alone with their secrets. So, they also felt unloved. Online support groups reduce the feeling of alienation by allowing us to realize that we are all in this together.
  • Depression support groups can help you sort through and process your feelings in a supportive environment where you know other people are struggling with the same thing. Processing your feelings in a group therapy setting can allow you to see your situation from a different perspective. And, it can help you realize that you’re not alone.
  • Online support groups allow you to express those thoughts that you have been holding inside. Sometimes, saying them out loud can feel intimidating.  Releasing those pent-up thoughts and emotions will allow you to concentrate better on your daily activities. And, it can help you make better decisions.
  • Online support groups help you move beyond guilt, shame, and worthlessness to a sense of growth, belonging, and empowerment.
