Waking Up From Depression Group

Get out of the fog and start feeling better.

Depression is more than just feeling sad. It drains your energy, motivation, and confidence. When you're depressed, even the things you normally enjoy don't sound that great. Eating and sleeping are off-kilter, you want to hide out by yourself, your brain is fuzzy, and you feel useless.

Depression is a common problem that college students face with the many transitions, new roles, and stressors that happen in school. If this sounds familiar, know that you're not alone, and remember that there is hope! There are things you can do to manage depression and feel better, and that’s exactly what we cover in the Waking Up From Depression Group.

Waking Up From Depression is a 4-session workshop and support group series that repeats throughout the semester. Join in at any time!

Here’s what we cover in Waking Up From Depression:

Session 1: Daily Rhythm and Human Contact

Feel human again with a sustainable routine, and discover why this is such an important part of managing depression.

Session 2: Clear, Healthy Thinking

Get off the hamster wheel of negative thoughts and see possibilities and solutions again.

Session 3: Navigating Negative Life Events

Respond to stressors, big and small, with mental toughness, self-respect, and most importantly, hope.

Session 4: Flourishing

Feel stronger, happier, and more excited by your life.
