RECOVERING FROM DEPRESSION
By Geoff Buckle
After years of being depressed, Geoff's finally getting better. He's being taken off his anti depressents and he's feeling more optimistic about the future. A couple of days a week, he goes to the Beacon Centre in Banbury. It's a chance for him to get out and make friends and it's really improved his confidence. His message to people suffering from depression - get out, have people around you and don't give up. It does get better...

What courage you have to offer your experience. Dear Geoff, there are so many more suffering depression in this world who will never be heard. It is usually the sensitive souls like yourself who sometimes take the long road of depression. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Good luck with all the interesting people you will meet on your path!
