Hi, is the National Depression and Manic Depressive Association. It's a very large group that sponsors support groups all over. If you follow the support group links at the site you come to a list by state. But I think there are groups not listed also. You may want to call whatever is the closest if there's not one near you to see. I know there is one at a nearby hospital to me that is not listed. It meets on Thurs nights. When I did a fieldwork in Portland ME some of the patients told me the group up there was great. I personally do not have experience with the groups so someone else might want to comment.

Also has a list of on-line depression support groups by type (e.g. seasonal depression). That may be helpful.

Also, has a list of personal web pages by individuals dealing with depression. I found this by searching under "depression, support". I checked out one "Andrews" and it looked great.

The search through Meta-Crawler pulled up a number more so you might want to try that. I know this isn't the same as the offer of personal therapy, but you may find something that helps and you can do this at home at the computer even when you don't have the energy to to out.
Hope this helps. Let us know if you come up with anything good.

I think the docs are on vacation. Hope they take care of themselves. All of us have benefited so much from their input.
