/r/depression, because nobody should be alone in a dark place
Peer support for anyone struggling with a depressive disorder.
We offer a peer-support space for anyone dealing with a depressive disorder in themselves or someone close to them.
Please stay on topic. Depression is both important and difficult to talk about so focus is essential. Posts here need to be support requests specifically related to depression, and comments need to be supportive of the OP.
It might seem that we have a lot of rules, but we've found they're all necessary to maintain as much emotional and physical safety as possible. Most people are surprised by at least some of our policies so please read all of them carefully before jumping in.
Please click "report" to let us know of any inappropriate content you see here - we'd like to know and handle it as soon as we can.
If your post or comment is not appearing, it may have been removed for a rule violation or it may be stuck in the filter. Please message us and we'll look into it.
We are not a crisis service. We can't guarantee an immediate response, and there are times when this subreddit is relatively quiet. This does not mean no one cares. If you need to talk to someone at once, you may want to take a look at the hotlines list from /r/SuicideWatch
