Course description

Introduction to the Depression Awareness Diploma

The Depression Awareness Diploma course will give students the opportunity to learn about this common mental health condition. The course is filled with information that is not only appropriate for those who have depression and want to learn more about it, but also for those who know or love people with depression, and how their loved ones can best be helped. This is also an excellent course for anyone who is interested in getting into the counselling or psychology field.

Depression is not easy to treat, and there are a number of methods that can be attempted after a diagnosis has been made. This course explains all of the traditional treatments for depression, as well as alternative and self-help treatments. Additionally, the course explains the different types of depression, how depression affects one’s life, and what events or actions might trigger depression.

This course is an online training course that allows students to study when it is convenient for them. Many who take this course remain working their full-time job, which allows them to not only achieve the goal of learning more about depression, but also allows them to stay on top of their responsibilities.

Those who take the depression course can access the material from any device that can connect to the internet, and online support is available during the training. When completing the course, you will take a test, and upon passing, will receive a diploma that can be printed at home. We can also send a copy of the diploma to you for a fee.
