Get It Done When You're Depressed Support Group - Hey Peers Certified


Depression robs us of many experiences in life. We want to have a sense of accomplishment through our actions, but we often feel unable to act. When we try to move forward, it feels like we are in slow motion. This can lead to stopping important tasks before we even get started. Depression affects not just our work, but can impact every part of our lives including how we think. Lack of getting things done when we’re depressed can diminish our sense of self which lowers our energy to face life. It’s a vicious cycle that we can end! This series of meetings are designed to help you move on with life, even when you’re depressed. Each meeting is a mixture of a drop-in support group and a book club based off of Julie A. Fast and Dr. John Preston’s book “Get It Done When You’re Depressed: 50 Strategies for Keeping Your Life on Track.” Each meeting will cover one easy to digest, life changing strategy to help you learn how to be more productive in the face of depression’s many obstacles. Group Leaders will guide participants through a reading of the strategy, an exercise and a discussion of the book’s key ideas in every session. There is also time to discuss your own experiences and get the help and support of other participants.
