Depression can happen to anyone.  It impacts on how we feel about ourselves and how we spend our time.  Enjoyment in life and motivation tends to decrease and we can be left with feelings of hopelessness, guilt or simply numbness.  In this course we define what depression means to us, we identify the causes of depression and what we can do to help ourselves.  The interactive sessions explore a wide range of positive coping strategies, techniques and lifestyle choices to enable you to live well with depression.
