The NZ Ministry of Health provide a very helpful and informative website addressing the issues of depression. A sub-tile for the website is, "understanding more about depression will help you find a way through."
Ex-All Black, John Kirwan features on the home page and his 'self test' is there for users.
Top level pages on the site are:
- is this depression?
- what can cause it?
- finding a way through
- stay well
- helping others
The home page is accessible here: http://www.depression.org.nz/content/home
A depression helpline 0800 111 757 is available for users.
A particularly helpful part of the website is its comprehensive Depression Resources offered in addition to the excellent website content itself. These consist of: fact sheets | booklets | online resources.
I Enjoy Working with Groups
I am available to work with groups seeking assistance around a number of issues. These may include:
Chronic & serious illness in the workplace, organisation or community
Engaging with change
Loss & grief issues
The challenge of self-care for people helpers....
Team building and group dynamics are among issues I have addressed with groups. I currently co-facilitate the "Heartsong" Wellington Bereaved Parents support Group. A particular passion is helping groups appreciate how 'rituals' help people to make meaning out of their life experiences.
My group work fees are $120+ per hour for businesses; $100+ per hour for NGO and Community groups.
Contact me to discuss possibilities for your business or organisation.
