Depression is a mood disorder which affects your feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Roughly one in 10 people experience depression, and it is very treatable.
Here at St Patrick’s Mental Health Services (SPMHS), we provide a Depression Recovery Programme to support people living with depression or symptoms connected with depression. This an online group programme which offers people the chance to understand depression, enables them to manage symptoms effectively, and empowers them to improve their quality of life.
There are three elements to the programme:
- Depression Recovery Workshop
- Depression Recovery Programme
- Depression Recovery Aftercare.
The programme equips people with the skills and tools necessary to understand their experience of depression and to maintain their recovery.
People can be referred to the programme by their GPs, or by their multidisciplinary team (MDT) if they are in inpatient care here in SPMHS.
The Depression Recovery Programme is currently being delivered online.
