Managing Depression

The Exchange, 33 Gawber Road, Barnsley S75 2AH

Understanding my Mental Health and Wellbeing



Sometimes the simplest things can be the hardest.  Minor tasks such as getting out of bed, answering the phone, making decisions; what to eat, what to wear, what to watch or even leaving the house, all can take major effort.

That’s one of the many pitfalls with Depression, easy becomes complicated and the everyday becomes exhausting. This course is not about stopping Depression, but it may help you to develop new ways to manage it better.

In this course, we will give you practical information and useful tips to help live your life well with depression. We will also offer you a different perspective on depression. This course has been informed by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approaches.

"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"
