Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program

Sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church – Maclean

One in five (20%) Australians and over 350 million people worldwide, suffer from depression and/or anxiety during stressful times, this disease can intensify.

Many factors can lead to depression and anxiety including unrealistic goals, added financial stress, family expectations and change of schedule or eating patterns. But the cure may not be as difficult as you might think. Actually, just a few basic lifestyle changes can help you break free of the trap of depression and/or anxiety.

Neil Nedley, MD has put together an 8-week Depression and Anxiety Recovery Program from his 15 plus years of research and clinical experience helping his patients.

Christine Allomes and Pam Osmond will be hosting this program, which begins on Monday 5th August at 7pm. This program will help you identify the underlying causes, or ‘hits’, which bring on depression and/or anxiety. ‘Every case is as different as each individual, but the 10 Hit Categories summarise all the possible causes for depression and/or anxiety. And determining your causes can be as simple as taking the Depression and Anxiety Questionnaire in this program,’ said Nedley.

Dr. Nedley, author of the books, ‘Proof Positive’ and ‘Depression: the Way Out’, will teach participants how to improve brain function, maximise IQ in children, increase energy, boost concentration, engage in healthy sleep habits, improve physical performance and gain renewed hope.

Osmond said this seminar is not only excellent for people who are depressed and anxious, but also for those who have family members or friends who are depressed and/or anxious. It will focus on brain health and what a person can do to treat depression and anxiety as well as the healthy lifestyle habits they can adopt to keep depression and anxiety from ever happening; even for those with a genetic predisposition to mental illness.

Osmond said that those attending the sessions will learn how to establish and maintain a strong exercise program, understand depression and anxiety, eliminate negative habits of body and mind, develop healthy eating patterns, and get more out of the day by enhancing brain function. Participants will spend less time frustrated by stress, decrease the risk of many diseases, say goodbye to negative thinking and understand the power of positive thinking.

Dr. Nedley will show participants better ways to combat depression and anxiety – learn what you can change and what you can’t, and how to make use of effective natural therapies,’ Osmond said.

This series will be the third for Maclean. The programs that were held in 2017 and 2108, proved successful in participants showing a reduction, not only in their level of Depression but also in Anxiety and Stress.
