BlueHackers Birds of a Feather

BlueHackers is an informal organisation of hackers and geeks who discuss and support each other on the topic of depression and mental illness. This BoF is an opportunity to meet with and talk freely about the topic of depression with other affected people. This isn't a therapy group, and is not a substitute for professional help. However talking openly about this topic is one of the most positive and helpful things we can do for each other. Participation is completely optional and voluntary - you are welcome to sit up the back and just listen if you prefer.

For more information you can read about BlueHackers.
