  Geeks & Depression meetup
  Tuesday, 6-December, 7:30pm
  No Starch Press, 38 Ringold Street, San Francisco, CA 
  (near Civic Center BART Station)

  Let's have a meetup where geeks can talk about depression 
  and suicide. You are not alone. Share your story, if you 
  like. Share a friend's story. Or just hang out and 
  listen. Let's make it OK to talk about these things so 
  that we don't feel so alone with our feelings of being 
  alone and depressed or suicidal.

  This is not a support group -- none of us are trained 
  professionals, but we can get together in a safe, 
  confidential space to talk about depression and suicide 
  -- an important part of life for so many of us geeks.
So it's already happened I guess. Anyone know how it went?

There is a second meetup tomorrow, as far as I can tell: https://www.facebook.com/maltman23/posts/10150415871850918
