Aware Support Groups offer a unique opportunity to talk openly about depression and its impact. We guarantee confidentiality within normal limits.

This means that confidentiality is guaranteed except:

• Where a person has immediate plans to self harm or plans to harm others.

• Where there is information that a child is at risk of, or has in the past been subjected to, harm/abuse/neglect.

Aware’s confidentiality policy is in line with best practice, and ‘Children First:National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children’ (Department of Children and Youth Affairs, 2011).

Ongoing attendance at the support groups will give you a better understanding of your depression (and elation) and its impact on your relationships and your work or social life. The caring and supportive nature of the groups allows attendees to develop the confidence to identify mood changes at an earlier stage, and so minimise the disruption on daily life.
