About this meeting
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 on 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 90-minute 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 brief discussion of the book’s key ideas. There is also time to discuss whatever is of interest to you at the time of the meeting.

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.
