This article describes an Anti-Depression, Anti-Suicide group established by the author in order to treat depression in young women. This group used feminist & narrative theory. The author helped the group objectify depression & remove the cultural stigma attached to it as a “woman’s disease.” External factors that contributed to depression are noted, such as male expectations & poor mother/daughter relationships. The group helped the women regain their voices & realize that they are not alone.
