Depression Recovery Program – NSW

Depression Recovery Program – NSW

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!
