DepressionWA is an intiative of the GenWHY? Support Group Inc

GenWHY? provides fortnightly support group meetings for people over 25 years of age experiencing depression and anxiety. We have a registered psychologist who facilitates our meetings, along with vital peer support. We offer support group meetings in the Perth CBD and Fremantle.

So come along and share your story or just share a cup of tea.

To find out more click on the GenWHY? Support Group tab. 

I founded GenWHY? after I struggled to find the support and services I needed whilst experiencing depression. To read the column that started it all click here.

Yours in health and happiness Amanda
