This short course will point you in the direction of nourishing lifestyle changes and more that you can do on your own to improve your wellbeing and overcome depression. Your active participation in creating wellness is actually the foundation for the deepest healing. Typically, your MD, psychotherapist, or healthcare provider does not have the time to educate you about the full range of effective alternatives. This is our job. All the information has been curated by experts so you don’t have to google or youtube to hunt for answers. Please keep in mind: This course offers information. It is educational. It is not a replacement for consulting your trusted healthcare provider.
You can sign up at anytime and receive the course materials, in full, shortly after registration.
Format: Online and Easy to Navigate
The info we provide comes in the form of unique videos, movie trailers, articles, self-tests, and cartoons. It’s engaging as well as informative. Avid readers will find many resources for further study.
This course has been created by Emma Bragdon, PhD, Executive Director of Integrative Mental Health for You. She has curated information from many experts in the field of mental health and organized the information so it is both comprehensive and easily accessible to a layperson.
How Much Time Does It Take?
Depends on how much you want to follow up on links given and extra materials. If you go straight thru you can complete the course in an evening by skipping the illustrative longer videos.
OVERCOMING DEPRESSION AGENDA in 4 Parts:
Part One: You will be able to take a test to see if you are depressed, reflect on what mainstream medicine would prescribe, reflect on stories of individuals who use the therapies we suggest in this course, and begin to chart your course for healing. You can also reflect on what is helpful to you if you are living with a depressed person.
Part Two: You will learn more about the foundation of health regarding sleep, nutrition, micronutrients, exercise and destressing. We cover some details on dosage as well as risks (if any) and outcomes. Added to this foundation is the value of volunteer service and maintaining supportive relationships, ideally in a community of meaning.
Part Three: You will be introduced to a number of effective therapies that have proven very effective in overcoming depression. These work with light, sound, electromagnetic frequencies, energy work, bodywork, bio and neurofeedback as well as cathartic therapies and meditation.
Part Four: We look at the horizon, i.e. therapies now being studied that have shown great promise but are not yet fully endorsed by the FDA and may not be legal. These include micro-dosing with LSD or psilocybin and, under trained guidance in a therapeutic setting, using MDMA aka Ecstasy, Ketamine, or Ayahuasca.
