This in-depth programme will guide you through depression, its causes, effects and treatments, deepening your understanding and helping you recognise the signs in yourself, colleagues or clients.

Up to 1 in 5 of us will become depressed at some point in our lives; with statistics like these, can you afford not to know about depression? This programme will help you cope with depression and care for those with it.

A ‘must have’ for induction, refresher, management and vocational training, for example the Care Certificate.
