North Island Mood Disorders resumes meetings

Support group meets Monday in Campbell River

After a brief hiatus, North Island Mood Disorders will resume regular weekly meetings in Campbell River.

“We are here to help all those suffering from depression, anxiety disorders and bipolar,” said Douglas Sewell, general manager of the group. “We hope to see all of you turn out as there are many new members and lots that we can learn from one another.”

Statistics indicate that roughly one in five Canadians will suffer a significant episode of depression during their lives.

The next meeting is at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18 at the BC Schizophrenia Society office at 850 East 12th Ave. in Campbell River.

Sewell would like to see a support group form in the Comox Valley. Contact him at nimooddisorders@gmail.com or 778-348-0588.
