For example, you may encounter an individual in the community, perhaps at work, who you believe may be experiencing symptoms of depression. This course will help you to approach this individual and will give you the tools to discuss your concerns as well as help them seek appropriate professional help. The course costs $100 and is offered as a two-day programme, from 9:30am-5pm on both days.
