Depression and Low Mood
Let's be honest, most people have painful memories from their school days. The embarrassment, the heartbreaks, the terrible haircuts. Thankfully, those days are over. Learners want to get straight to the point, and that's why this course has been condensed into engaging, manageable chunks that you can take now, on the bus or wherever, via mobile or desktop. Our courses provide learners with important knowledge, information and confidence to do their jobs in a safe, healthy and sustainable way.
We've all felt low at some point. The stresses of modern life can do that to the best of us. But depression is a different beast altogether. If you have suffered or do suffer from depression, then you'll understand how hard it is to seek help. You see, that's one of the ironies of this horrific mental illness. It 'fogs up' your brain and clouds your vision so that you don't see the help available or the point in accepting that help.
That's where this course comes in. Understanding depression is the first step to recovering from it. Whether it's you that's suffering, or you suspect that your friend or relative is, this course is an aid to diagnosis, treatment and recovery. We're not claiming it will cure you. But it's going to help you on your way down that road. It's not a sprint, it's a marathon, and we'll be at the side of the road passing you water as you go.
