We are a support group for women who experience depression and mental health illness. The overall aims are set out in our charitable papers but the main ones are-
The relief of sickness and preservation of health among women residing permanently or temporarily in Sheffield.
To protect the mental health of women sufferers of depression and related illness in Sheffield through support, education and practical advice.
To advance the education of the general public in all areas relating to depression and related illness.
What drives us :
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.
Filling the gaps in statutory services is where SODIT comes into play, such as when people are left after therapy finishes or when they are discharged from hospital. One of the main problems is the waiting lists for mental health services which can be still up to 18 months for support.
