Depression Center (Canada / USA)
The Depression Center site offers an 18 session cognitive behaviour therapy program. Once logged on, users are able to connect with people through an online support group, and to ask 'health educators' questions about depression. You may complete a depression and anxiety quiz, and the feedback from your responses is able to be printed or emailed, for example, to a mental health professional. The program encourages you to map out your goals and proceed through the exercises on the website at your own pace. You can download cognitive behaviour therapy workbooks. The symptoms and treatment of depression are described. You are provided with information about how to manage and prevent your symptoms, for example, by organising enjoyable activities or changing how you think about your experiences. The website also provides information about the different types of depression which is available without registration.
