Experience Project

posted by Beyond Blue

While at BlogHer I learned about the Experience Project. EP allows users to anonymously tell their life experiences and stories and connect with other users that share those same experiences. They have a great deal of content around depression and members appear to be quite active both sharing their stories and feelings as well as going on the site to provide others with support. I found it to be a great resource to connect with others and would love to hear what you think.

    Hi Therese!
    Thanks so much for the mention. Experience Project began its life as a hope-oriented, positive discussion forum for multiple sclerosis patients.
    Through that experience, I saw the power in connecting people, anonymously, who understood each other’s life predicaments far better than even friends and family. That became Experience Project– where we connect our members based on the experiences they have had.
    We do indeed have a large and very active “I Battle Depression” group and are always striving to improve what we provide to the community at large. The thoughts of a luminary like yourself, and that of your warm community, would be highly valuable for us. Thanks again.
    Best,

How to Handle Negative People
One of my mom’s best pieces of advice: “Hang with the winners.” This holds true in support groups (stick with the people who have the most sobriety), in college (find the peeps with good study habits), and in your workplace (stay away from the drama queen at the water cooler). Why? Because we

Can I Say I’m a Son or Daughter of Christ and Suffer From Depression?
In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, we read: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” What if we aren’t glad, we aren’t capable of rejoicing, and even prayer is difficult? What if, instead, everything looks dark,
