    A place to socialize and meet others with anxiety

    It would be nice if the community could have large cafes where people with mental illness can meet and socialize and hangout. People who are in similar situations. Wouldn't that facilitate and accelerate recovery? These cafes could be nice places to do homework, maybe even to find your soulmate
