Hey everyone,

I live in Columbus, Ohio, and am finding that resources and groups for Asperger's are hard to come by. Mainly everything addresses depression and mental illness, which Asperger's, in my opinion, is NOT. I do have depression, but it frustrates me that all the groups in this area are solely focused on mental illness. I've been in groups like that before, and found them not helpful because everyone else in the group has far more serious issues than I do; I just get regular seasonal depression.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a useful resource? I know there was a group for Asperger's that met, but it doesn't meet anymore. Please be advised that I have checked both the NAMI and ADAMH state/local sites, and found very little useful info from them. If there simply isn't much, I'm interested in opening up a dialogue among Central Ohio members, possibly forming a group.

Welcome !

Well I'm not from Ohio, neither from the United States. But you have my full support. This is not about depression, but about understanding.

Okay, well, thank you for introducing me, everyone, but it doesn't really answer my question...

I am from Mansfield, Ohio and have been having the same problems finding Aspie groups or something like it. Maybe someone should start an online group.

I was born in Maumee, Ohio but raised in Toledo, Ohio. However I had to move in 2009 to Indiana due to the stock market crash that had happened a year later. Eventually, I had to move from Indiana to Texas, where I still live to this day.
