Course Description

Managing Depression is an engaging course that offers an abundance of ideas for taking personal control over the nasty symptoms of depression.  Focusing on self-help for mild to moderate depression, this online class identifies the various symptoms of depression, and takes a meaningful and sincere approach, primarily to alternative and self-help therapies.

While not excluding traditional and more conventional therapies--such as counseling and medical support--this course also encourages students to take steps to empower themselves to feel better as well as reviews holistic approaches toward the mind and body.  Taking responsibility for as much of the healing process as possible – even if it simply means making an appointment with a doctor – is the first step toward more confidence and self-esteem.  This class provides an uplifting, upbeat and realistic approach to depression which is intended to energize and encourage learners to face their problems head-on.
