You Are Not Alone
Depression Recurrence Prevention Group
Expressive Arts and Drama Therapy

“At least 50% of those who recover from a first episode of depression having one or more additional episodes in their lifetime, and approximately 80% of those with a history of two episodes having another recurrence. “- Stephanie L. Burcusa and William G. Iacono

It can be frustrating and scary that Depression is lurking in the shadows and wait for a chance to come back into our lives. You are not alone. Working together, you will be supported by people who understand the challenges, develop your own coping strategies, and experience the healing power of arts.

  • Learn tools to do self-screening from physical/psychological/social perspectives.
