Dealing with Depression

Shift Youth + Community,

Dealing with Depression is a 6 week course that is designed to provide you with information, and a space to belong so you are empowered to make choices about how to move forward. We look at everything from what depression is, to ways of dealing with it, such as medication and talking therapies. We will also explore faith and depression; how faith impacts depression and vice versa. The course is delivered through podcasts with some weeks also having accompanying worksheets, and the hope is that everyone will be able to do the course with a small group of friends as there is time for sharing as well. This course is not the be all and end all for your recovery, it is just one tool that might help.
