摘要: this upcoming Tuesday\x0aregistration closes Monday 4pm


Moving to a new country, going through a breakup, a loss of a job, or living with mental conditions is very challenging. Yet, there’s no reason to suffer alone when one can choose to join hands with others and let the power of connection and group support heal us.

In the absence of such social support in Beijing, CandleX established an English speaking mental health peer support group in Oct 2015. It provides a safe environment for people living in Beijing to share personal experiences, thoughts, and feelings in small, confidential gatherings. This is a project provided by CandleX, an NGO in Beijing that focuses on the mental health by awareness raising on depression. This is a continuing effort to provide more support to our Beijing English speaking community.

To understand the demographics of our group members, and support results. Please read our 1st year support group review results.

Key Information

Participants: Our support groups are for people with any mental conditions ranging from depression, mania and severe anxiety. Note: The support group is especially effective for new comers who are in situations of lack of social support, or experiencing shame and guilt of having depression.
