"Depression" is one of the most commonly used words in mental health. Every month, over a million searches for depression are entered in Google. The experts say that more than 1 in 10 people suffer from depression.

But, what exactly is depression?

Regrettably, there is much misinformation about depression in the public arena. Much of what people assume to be true about depression is either wrong or distorted information.

In this course, I set out to correct this situation, by providing detailed information regarding what is commonly called "depression".

There are three sections to this course:-

(a) The prevailing view of depression, what depression is generally understood to be.

(b) A critique of the prevailing view of depression. This section of the course consists of a detailed analysis of the level of correctness and truth that pertains to each of the common assumptions and beliefs about depression, for example, depression as a medical illness; brain disorder; a chemical imbalance; a genetic illness; an illness just like diabetes, to name just a few of the 11 presentations in this section, amounting to more than 8 hours of audio-visual material in this section alone.

(c) A detailed setting-out of the true nature of depression. In this section of the course, I set out what I have come to understand as the true nature of depression, the true nature of the experiences and behaviours that become collectively labelled as "depression".

While this course is not strictly speaking a directed self-help course (it is primarily intended as an educational tool), the considerably-enhanced understanding that this course provides will serve as a very helpful tool towards dealing effectively with the experiences and behaviours that come to be called "depression", and provides many pointers regarding how to move forward and how to progress the process of recovering one's emotional and mental wellbeing, and one's life.

I have sought to utilise my considerable breadth of knowledge and experience to create this comprehensive online course for the general public. My knowledge and experience arises from:

* Personal experiences of distress, loss and trauma in my life, particularly in my early life;

* Over 30 years as a physician, fully registered with the Irish Medical Council;

* 14 years as a psychotherapist, fully accredited with the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP);

* 14 years as the provider of one of Ireland's few truly recovery-oriented mental health services;

* 9 years of service on national government-appointed mental health groups, including the Expert Group on Mental Health Policy which formulated Ireland's official mental health policy document, A Vision for Change;

* The author of 3 mental health books to date, the first of which (Beyond Prozac) reached no. 3 in Ireland's non-fiction best sellers list, and was shortlisted for the UK Mind 2002 Book of the Year Award;

* An unwavering determination to do whatever I can to improve the general understanding of emotional and mental health issues, including the psychiatric diagnoses, so that better outcomes become more frequently attainable.

Course price: Introductory early bird price of £60.00 (Sterling - Euro/dollar equivalent). At end October 2016, price reverts to £99.00 Sterling, a more realistic price given the degree of information and content within the course.

Guarantee: Full 30-day refund of for any reason you are not satisfied with the course.
