Managing Depression

The Exchange, 33 Gawber Road, Barnsley S75 2AH

Understanding my mental health and wellbeing


Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest.  Minor tasks such as getting out of bed, answering the phone, making a decision, what to eat, what to wear, what to watch or even leaving the house all take major effort.  That’s one of the many pitfalls with depression.  Easy becomes complicated.  The everyday becomes exhausting.

This course is not about stopping depression, but it may help you develop new ways to help better manage it.  We will give you practical information and useful tips to help you live your life and offer you a different perspective of how you view your depression.

This course is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).



"Directly because of this course I applied for my dream job and GOT IT!!"

"This course helped my self-confidence greatly and made me able to look to the future with much HOPE after putting into practice what I've learned"

"Because of peer support within our group, I've a brand new circle of friends to go to when I need support"
