Depression is a common mental health challenge in the workforce. Many people use alcohol to self-medicate and dampen depressive thoughts. There is a proven link between increased depression and alcohol.

In this course, workers learn that mismanagement of work-related strain and personal issues may create depressive thoughts. These thoughts can build up over time to create larger ongoing issues.

This course teaches workers how to recognise depressive thoughts in themselves and others. They learn the symptoms of depression and are provided with helpful coping strategies.
