That’s why Torrens University, in partnership with Beyond Blue, is launching a free, online short course that will provide vital insights into the experiences of people living with depression. Understanding Depression: Learning From Lived Experience is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that will give insight into the day-to-day lived experiences of people with depression, and the family and friends who support them.
The four-week course is open to anyone with a personal or professional interest in understanding depression. Commencing on Monday 26 October 2020, it will be delivered by Torrens University lecturers alongside content created by people with a lived experience of depression, including representatives from Beyond Blue. It will provide an insight into the challenges that people living with depression face – from how it can be triggered, how it shapes daily life and how people have found support to ongoing management and recovery.
You will receive a certificate upon completion. 26th October 2020 – 29th November 2020 Course duration: 4 weeks – minimum of 2 hours per week (8 hours total).
