The depression support network facebook group is up! Check it out!

As you may be able to tell, things have been pretty busy this month, with some staff sick, and other staff working to fill the gaps. However, we’ve a couple of new things to report:

  • We recently started a support group in Ashburton. So far we’ve had two meetings, which have been quite popular
  • DSN is getting a facebook page! You’ll be able to keep up with DSN in another way. At the moment the page is in progress, but it will be up soon!

One recent development in the treatment of depression has been online self-help programs. These programs can provide information or self-help exercises, or both.┬áThe University of Otago is currently running a study to evaluate some of these programs. If you’re experiencing depression, and you should consider taking part in the study, you would be contributing to a greater understanding of depression and how to deal with it, and you are likely to gain skills and information which could be helpful in managing your mental health.
