One in five Australians will suffer from depression with a new program kicking off in Cootamundra said to focus on the underlying and contributing causes of depression and anxiety so that a lasting cure can be found.
Neil Nedley, MD has put together an eight-week ‘Depression Recovery Program’ from his 17 plus years of research and clinical experience helping patients.
Ben Kosmeier, Presenter for Adventist Health will host the Nedley Depression Recovery Program in Cootamundra.
Mr Kosmeier said those attending the program sessions will learn how to establish and maintain an exercise program, understand depression, eliminate negative habits of body and mind, develop healthy eating patterns, and get more out of the day by enhancing brain function.
Participants will spend less time frustrated by stress, decrease the risk for many diseases and say goodbye to negative thinking.
The program includes viewing the DVD series by Dr Nedley and his textbook Depression The Way Out, as well as completing a workbook and online questionnaire identifying depression and anxiety.
A free introductory session will be held in the Stephen Ward Rooms on Monday, March 27 from 6.30pm.
