There are many websites that provide credible information that can help those who may be suffering from depression.

Among those are Mental Health America, the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, and WebMD's Depression Support Group.

"Online depression support groups can help you realize that you are not alone in dealing with the feelings of depression. This added support can give you new confidence as you learn to manage the illness and handle the daily challenges in a reasonable manner," noted WebMD, a medical site that also provides information on depression resources.

Other websites include the Anxiety and Depression Association of America and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Noted NAMI: "If you or someone you know is struggling, you are not alone. There are many supports, services and treatment options that may help. A change in behavior or mood may be the early warning signs of a mental health condition and should never be ignored. There are many different types of mental illness, and it isn’t easy to simplify the range of challenges people face."

Some other websites that have valuable information about depression, according to Health.com, include: About.com; HealingWell.com; the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration; National Empowerment Center; National Mental Health Consumers' Self-Help Clearinghouse; and the National Stigma Clearinghouse.

Heath also added that there were many influential bloggers writing about depression. Among them: The Splintered Mind, and Beyond Blue.

The website 7 Cups of Tea also offers a chat room and online help.

"A majority of people experience depression at least once during their lifetime. It can be difficult to overcome depression without support, without learning what exactly depression is, and without learning helpful coping strategies," the website said.
