New to Site

Hi gang, I'm new to this site. Just wanted to check in and say I've had varying degrees of depression for as long as I can remember. However well intentioned, folks without the affliction can't understand depression arising from within our core (rarely based just on life circumstances). Does anyone know if there is a network of depression support groups on the ground; like ACA has, for instance. That would be a safe place where people understand depression on a gut level. Even my wife and therapist, kind though they are, can only relate intellectually.
