How do I find an online depression support group?

ANSWER

Online depression support groups, such as WebMD's Mental Health Message Board, can provide you with encouragement from others -- even people you don't know. Online depression support groups can help you realize that you are not alone in dealing with depression. This added support can give you new confidence as you learn to manage the illness and handle daily challenges.
