Join us in the darker months of the year as we seek light and hope.
We’ll focus on depression and the winter ‘blues’ and ‘blahs’, as we explore ways to
spark our energy, learn how to respond skillfully to negative beliefs (like winter is
‘awful’) and difficult feelings, and create and sustain a plan for change.

Session 1: January 11, 2023: Join us as we explore signs
& symptoms of common types of depression and the
winter blues. We’ll also look at lifestyle factors that
can have a big impact on our moods. We will also talk
about treatment options for the signs and symptoms
including the ones covered in the following sessions.

Session 2: January 25, 2023: Find your spark & jump
into action. In this session, we’ll explore the
relationship between activity & mood, types of
activities to increase a sense of joy & purpose, and
practice goal-setting.

Session 3: February 8, 2023: Low moods typically
involve negative beliefs & affect our sense of self-worth
& hope. In this session, we’ll look at common
patterns of negative self-talk and strategies to
respond more skillfully to experience a shift.

Session 4: February 22, 2023: In this session, we’ll
explore ways to increase a sense of self-compassion &
care for ourselves. You will also have the opportunity
to create a unique & practical plan for change or to
sustain changes made.
