Sessions calendar

Course name: Managing Depression

What is the session about?

Within this session we discuss how we self nurture and look at what can bring some relief to the symptoms of depression. We consider the things we need daily and what support we might require. We explore the relationship between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour and how we can step out of the vicious cycle of depression. We discover what is important to us and how we can incorporate our values in our lives.

Who is it for?

The session is aimed at those who are feeling depressed and would like to consider ways in which they can find some relief from their depression or low mood. However, the course is open to anyone who would like to develop a sense of wellbeing and some tools to help them on their way.

How is it taught?

The session is delivered over the Zoom platform and using screen based resources will focus on depression and its impact.  We will look to reflect on what works and provides us with a foundation to make changes that will move us in the direction of wellness.

What will be learnt?

A recognition that recovery takes work and self reflection.
