There is a wealth of information online about depression. Many of these resources have been developed and are maintained by others who also suffer from depression. We've reviewed and rated hundreds of them, and provide them in an easy-to-use listing here.
Andrew's Depression Page
Lots of useful information for those who are depressed and for loved ones of those suffering from depression. Includes poetry and stories of those who suffer from depression. The a.s.d.

Unfortunately, the author has largely stopped updating this site.
