Understanding Depressive Illness

A one-hour awareness session that provides practical takeaways in a flexible timeframe
  • 1 Hour
  • Seminar (Specialized)
  • General Audience

Description

Individuals suffering from depression often feel distant from friends and loved ones and can find it difficult to perform to their maximum productivity in the workplace. They can often have high rates of absenteeism or be unfocused. This situation is exacerbated by the stigma that still exists around depression and the reluctance to discuss it openly at home or at work.

The facilitator will encourage participants to shatter popular myths and misconceptions about depression and to increase their understanding of the causes, triggers, and symptoms of depressive illness. This seminar will also explore ways in which depression can be successfully treated.
