This program was run by the Elim Missionary College students and Sydney churches. Both Wentworthville and Schofields churches held a free information and introduction meeting on Tuesday evening 8th April, then the 8 week program took place at 158 Bridge Road, Wentworthville NSW, from 15April; to 3 June 2014.
The program catered not only for people experiencing depression but also for those who would like to support a friend or loved one through hard times; it was also for those who are interested in avoiding anxiety and depression, improving emotional intelligence and dealing with stress at home and work.
Those who attended learnt how to:
- Identify depression and its causes
- Enhance energy levels and mood
- Make positive lifestyle choices
- Eat for optimal brain function
- Manage stress without distress
- Defeat depression with right thinking
- Achieve peak mental performance
The Depression Recovery Program was not geared for taking anyone off medications, as this must be done by their General Practitioner; but by following the recommended program it would definitely improve their quality of life and help them avoid getting further depressed. The cost of the program was $195 which included all materials, books, and on-line tests.
May God help all those who attended this program to seek Him as their Master Physician!
