there should be a moderator, usually a counselor...then each participant may open up. it works in many countries to find people who are in the same boat of experience. they share...learn from one another...and basically help to lift each other up.
in this country, depression is still taboo to discuss. maybe the culture...it's not so open yet to express one's negative situation deeply. but this kind of support helps.

Hello! I'll try to be of help. I work in the mental health profession and as far as I know, the only support group for people with mood disorders (note that this includes not only depression but bipolar disorder as well), is mood harmony which is based in makati medICal center. the other one I know of but is a heterogenous group accepting all types of psychiatric illness is GROW support group based in metro psych facility in Pasig. Not sure if Mood Harmony is still active but I know that GROW does meet every Wednesday 4-6pm.
