Survivors of Depression is all about giving women a chance to move on from their illness or period in life which has been very straining on family life and personal life. We have seen many women now who have managed to move on from the group towards a happy and fulfilling life. This is at the heart of what we do, and also what the government's reform agenda in Health is all about. We are very passionate about supporting women in Sheffield, and have been only funded on a very ad hoc basis.Our impact on the community
We are a small Survivor & user led women's organisation based in Sheffield who have been running for over 20 years. We support women who experience mental health distress by the use of peer support , one to one talking therapy, campaigning , mental health awareness training , and telephone support as well as other activities. We are 100% run by volunteers and have been awarded regional and national awards for our work locally in Sheffield , for conferences we have held.
