About this meeting
Depression robs us of many experiences in life. We want to have a sense of accomplishment through our actions, but we often feel unable to act. When we try to move forward, it feels like we are in slow motion. This can lead to stopping important tasks before we even get started. Depression affects not just our work, but can impact every part of our lives including how we think. Lack of getting things done when we’re depressed can diminish our sense of self which lowers our energy to face life. It’s a vicious cycle that we can end! This series of meetings are designed to help you move on with life, even when you’re depressed. Each meeting is a mixture of a drop-in support group and a book club based off of Julie A. Fast and Dr. John Preston’s book “Get It Done When You’re Depressed: 50 Strategies for Keeping Your Life on Track.” Each meeting will cover one easy to digest, life changing strategy to help you learn how to be more productive in the face of depression’s many obstacles. Group Leaders will guide participants through a reading of the strategy, an exercise and a discussion of the book’s key ideas in every session. There is also time to discuss your own experiences and get the help and support of other participants.

About the host
I am a certified peer specialist in Atlanta, GA and I love what I do! I am knowledgeable about support groups of all kinds and can support you on learning more about them-on heypeers. Currently I facilitate the Heypeers Certified meeting "Get It Done When You're Depressed, " and I co-facilitate the LGBTQ+ Wake-Up Narcolepsy group. I am taking a short break from scheduling 1:1 peer sessions but I aiming to resume them in December 2023. You can continue to send me connection requests and chats. I am queer, neurodivergent, love DBT, creating art, writing, my animals, and nerdy stuff. I have my own business, Hope Is Real LLC, and I am the author of two books: Hope Is Real: I Have A Purpose and Hope Is Real: Radical Recovery Prayers. @Brighthopeart on Instagram. Website is
Motivation for help
The last time I was hospitalized in a mental hospital, I was supported more by my peers than by the staff. Now, I want to give that support back to other peers.

They have completed training, passed exams and have met other requirements in their state to become cerified. Some of our CPSs are also nationally certified and most have other credentials as well. Most HeyPeers Certifed meetings are 90 minutes in length and include a discussion of helpful tips and techniques.
