Managing Depression

Friday, October 15th  (12:00 – 1:00 PM)
Friday, October 22nd  (12:00 – 1:00 PM)

Depression is one of the most common psychological disorders across the world. Many of us know what depression is like, even if we haven’t been diagnosed. It can keep us from doing good work. It can keep us isolated from family and friends. It can keep us from enjoying life. It can even hurt our physical health. Seasons of depression may be unavoidable, but they don't have to be debilitating, long-lasting, or cause immense suffering. Learn how to deal effectively with depression in our upcoming mental health session.
