The social network for those living with depression.

MyDepressionTeam is a social network and online support group for people who are living with depression. MyDepressionTeam gives you the easiest way to find the best team of providers and peers who are living with depression. Share with others like you, and learn from their experience.

MyDepressionTeam is a free social network that makes it easy for you to:

  • get the emotional support you need from others like you, and
  • gain practical advice and insights on managing treatment or therapies for depression

When you or a loved one are first diagnosed, it’s not uncommon to feel alone and uncertain of where to find the best information and people that can help you now. We believe in making it easy to find the best people around you to help you get the answers you need, and to find support from people who can truly relate. The main currency on our site is trust – the more you share in posts and your stories, the more questions you ask and answer, the more your support will be valued by other members.

MyDepressionTeam is the only social network where you can truly connect, make real friendships, and share daily ups and downs in a judgment-free place.

Group for cis-identified spouses and intimate partners of transgender people.

Group for cis-identified spouses and intimate partners of transgender people starting again in Irvine, Orange County, CA.

Details are as follows: Six-week, closed group, one and a half hours per session. Dates are not set yet, but likely offered on Saturday mornings at my office in Irvine, starting by the end of October. Each session is $50 but since the group is closed, I ask for a commitment for the entire series.

In the past I’ve found this group to be so beneficial to the members in creating community, normalizing feelings, and combating isolation. We cover subjects ranging from finances to sexuality to identity, parenting, and anything else that the members would like to bring in. The members have also tended to be leaning towards staying with their partners, albeit with their own struggles, ambivalence and adjustment process.

LAS VEGAS HEALING GROUP.

 

This group will be facilitated by, Eliza Steel, an MFT Intern with a Masters in Clinical Psychology and an Applied Community Psychology specialization. In addition to her Private Practice internship with Stacy-Colleen Nameth, LCSW, she continues to work in community mental health at the Southern California Counseling Center where she facilitates groups for the Outreach department. As trauma and relational work is primarily her focus, Eliza continues to train in the Trauma Resiliency Model and EMDR to enhance her integration of attachment and somatic work into her practice. To contact Eliza regarding her Post Las Vegas Healing Group in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, California, please email her at elizasteeltherapy@gmail.com, call her at 424.274.1596, or visit her website at www.elizasteel.com (The group is not currently listed on her website). The group will meet Sundays from 2-3:30p.m. beginning October 22nd and running for five consecutive weeks. A $10-$20 cash donation per week is requested. Please RSVP via email by October 21st @ noon as space is limited. http://www.elizasteel.com/

In the midst of profound and complex grief following a natural disaster, these principles can guide you when helping others. (From Next Avenue).

Natural Disaster

How to Really Help Someone After a Natural Disaster

How to support people after their world has been turned upside down.

Our country has recently been devastated by one natural disaster after another, including hurricanes, floods, wildfires and major earthquakes just to the south of us in Mexico. Thousands of people have lost property. Some have lost loved ones. Others have lost their jobs. People from coast to coast have generously donated money and supplies to those affected. Such efforts will be ongoing, as survivors gradually try to rebuild, re-organize and put the pieces of their lives back together. At the same time, there is a deeper experience that goes beyond the physical and material needs. All of those affected by the natural disasters are grieving, and that grief will not be over in a day, a month or even years to come. Let’s look at the underlying issues of grief and what you can do to help those you know or love who were pummeled by the force of the natural disasters.
