New resource provides strategies for tackling depression

A new audio resource has been launched that aims to help people with depression on their road to recovery.

Produced by Depression Alliance Cymru, ‘Taking Control: Healthy Strategies for Living with Depression’ is a talking book made up of six CDs.

“Taking Control was written by people affected by depression for people affected by depression,” said a DA Cymru spokesperson.

“It is a comprehensive and holistic self-help book that deals with the causes and symptoms of depression, formal and alternative treatments, and a full range of self-help techniques. ‘Taking Control’ is about people making a conscious decision to change their lives through the development of a personalised self-help programme.”

‘Taking Control’ is available in both English and Welsh at £10 per copy, plus postage and packaging. For more information or to make an order, you can contact DA Cymru by phone on 029 2069 2891 or email at admin@dacymru.org
