Positive Minds: Free wellbeing course

By TerSL 08 Oct 2018

Learn how to keep low moods at bay with this free Positive Minds course.

The course has been designed for university students with mild depression or individuals who have experienced depression before and would like to take steps now to prevent future episodes of depression. It is NOT suitable for individuals with more severe depression and is not a substitute for professional treatment. Depression can be a serious illness and it is always advisable to seek professional support if you think you may be depressed, or if you are or have recently been feeling suicidal.  

When low mood hangs around, it can be easy to end up in a downward spiral. Whilst not a substitute for professional help, the strategies discussed in Positive Minds offer a starting point for what you can do to prevent chronic stress or low mood from persisting or getting worse. By supporting you to make positive changes in your daily life, Positive Minds helps students to build strategies to maintain positive mood throughout university.        

The course
Over a six week period, each 90 minute session will cover a different topic and provide useful coping strategies to prevent depression and low moods. This confidential course has been developed using material from Students Against Depression which provides award-winning information and self-help resources for depression. Positive Minds is suitable for most students and covers a different topic each week.

Week 1 - Building a Support Network
