I think there should be a TSR society for people who are very depressed and we could be depressed together in the hopes of cheering others up. I’m depressed because I’ve been bullied for 17 years and have no friends.

There's a Mental Health Support Society in the Mental Health subforum

I’m well aware but I think it needs its own separate thread

Sounds like a good idea but it could also be counterproductive.

Getting out of a depressive state requires willpower and focus, if you’re talking to a bunch of other people also crying about being depressed it’s not going to help you.

you should surround yourself with positive people instead.

There are groups like this on other forums but they don't end up being like 'cheering' forums trying to encourage each other. They turn more into echo chamber of relentless angst, moaning and affirmation that all involved are depressed out of their minds with no hope. You are better doing mental health support as goatherd mentioned.

When I was depressed the worst thing for me was to be around others who were also depressed. It just resulted in a giant ball of negative depressive energy and people trying to 1 up others with how depressed they were or worse off they had it.
It was hell. Could never deal with that environment ever again in my life.

tbh you're aiming for a middle ground on all accounts slightly skewed towards 'content'.

Anon #3 speaks wisely.

But the society would be too... depressing.

I agree with that.
I also found that people formed cliques and if you didn't fit into the clique then people just pushed you out and tried to tell you how you were doing depression "wrong".
