Dealing with Depression
So happy to see you here!
Can you relate?
You wake up in the morning more tired than when you went to bed, and your motivation for another day is zero? You’ve forgotten what the point to your life is and are unsure how to move forward?
Your whole life seems to be under a black cloud that no one else sees, or seems to get?
What if hope began to dawn again and you woke up in the morning feeling like you could face the day? What if you discovered something outside of yourself that gave you a reason to get up?
You discovered a community of people who not only understand your black cloud but have had similar experiences, and some of them have even found a light in the darkness?
We would love to work with you so that you can experience similar breakthroughs on your walk with depression. This is not a journey we need to go on alone! Sign up for free to take part in the Dealing with Depression course.
Our Journey Together
Dealing with Depression is a 6 week course that is designed to provide you with information, and a space to belong so you are empowered to make choices about how to move forward. We look at everything from what depression is, to ways of dealing with it, such as medication and talking therapies. We will also explore faith and depression; how faith impacts depression and vice versa. The course is delivered through podcasts with some weeks also having accompanying worksheets, and the hope is that everyone will be able to do the course with a small group of friends as there is time for sharing as well. This course is not the be all and end all for your recovery, it is just one tool that might help.

LOOKING FORWARD TO JOURNEYING WITH YOU
My name is Anika Parker, and I am the leader of Dealing with Depression. The course was originally written by Holy Trinity Brompton, but we have adapted and added to their framework. The reason I am so passionate about this course is that as a person who suffers from depression and anxiety I know it can be a hard and lonely road to recovery – whatever that looks like.
For me recovery has and continues to involve medication, talking therapies, prayer and good friends. Due to the complex nature of our depression, it takes a myriad of strategies to help. I hope that as we explore some of those strategies it might give you some information and possible steps you could take in your own journey towards recovery.
What others have said
I can now make better choices! It has helped to hear other peoples experiences of depression, and their ideas for coping with it…
There is hope, and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
It has helped me to be able to explain my yo-yoing emotions to those around me so that they can better understand. It has given me tools to use going forward to help things to improve.
