I am currently working with an organization called Refa'enu that is already providing a bi-weekly free mood disorders support group in NJ. We are looking to begin a similar group in NYC and want to get an idea if there are interested individuals (or individuals that you might know) who would consider attending. The organizations website is Refa'enu. If you want to know more about the NYC initiative, reply to this message or email Dena at Dena

We have received quite a few inquiries regarding the group and are in the active process are procuring a suitable space for it. Once we have a place, we will contact anyone who is interested and likely place an update over here as well. Because it would be helpful to know how many to expect, if you or anyone else is interested, please email Dena with contact info and we will reach out as soon as we have an update.

Thanks for sharing. I was considering going, but didn't get around to mustering up the courage yet. It's less than twenty minutes away from me, and I'd really like to go. How many people were there? What was the atmosphere like? How long did it run for?
