Exploring Anxiety and Depression beginning
Wednesday 27 September 2017

This is a self-help support group for people suffering from anxiety or depression. Professional and experienced speakers will help us to look at the causes and consequences of anxiety and depression, and at various ways of combatting these conditions. There is also ample time for discussion. The course seeks to provide helpful perspectives in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, but does not provide counselling or therapy.

What's involved
We start at 7.45 pm, hear a short talk and then have a small group discussion, though you don't have to say anything if you don't want to. There is a break in the middle for coffee and cake. The course is free, based on Christian principles, open to everyone and lasts ten weeks.

Although we deal with difficult issues we find that during the evening there is a lot of laughter and people have a good time.

Topics covered

  • Anxiety and depression, what they are, their causes and effects
  • Medication
  • Talking therapies
  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Self-help techniques
  • Relationships
  • Anxiety, depression and faith
  • Looking forward
Getting there
Many people find it hard to come to the first evening but after that they look forward to it and by the end of the course they have made really good friends.

What people have said
"I now know that am not alone."
"The chocolate cake was great!”

“The best thing was being able to share experiences and get to know others in the same boat.”
