Course overview:

Feeling low is something most of us experience from time to time and it is a natural part of being human. However, when these feelings become more severe, begin to take hold of your life and just won’t go away, it may be something more serious like depression.

Depression is common but for those who are diagnosed, it can be a frightening and isolating condition. You cannot just “snap out of it”, it can be hard to understand and may present differently in different people.

Course information:

In this 3-session in-person course, we explore:

  • The facts and realities of depression
  • How to recognise depression
  • The support available to you, or someone you care about who may have depression.

In this safe environment, you can share your experience, as well as helping and learning from others.
