Understanding Depression and Anxiety

“Depression” and “anxiety” are terms you may often hear in mental health settings, and are two of the most common mental health issues that people experience. But what do we actually mean when we talk about them?

In the supportive material on this page, you can find handouts, videos, and activities that will help you learn about depression and anxiety. We suggest that you start with “Understanding Anxiety and Depression” and then move on to “Causes of Anxiety and Depression” to get the most out of the exercises. To download the files, just click or tap on either of the buttons.

If you find these courses useful, you might want to check out our supportive material on Managing Depression and Anxiety, which looks at some coping strategies and techniques you might find helpful. It follows on nicely from what we cover here, so we hope you’ll find both useful.

We know it can be difficult to read or think about subjects like these, especially if you struggle with similar issues yourself. If you want to talk to someone, please remember you can ring Slough CMHT and the Recovery Team on 01753 690 950.
