Learning some creative ways to deal with depression, based on one’s own personal experiences utilizing the power of the Twelve Steps of Depressed Anonymous. Our program is modeled after the recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Many times a person depressed will look for help from our website, hoping that we have something that will give them relief and present for them a positive solution. We do our best to help them with our solution focused approach to overcoming depression. Most are thankful to know that we are here and have developed various avenues for one’s own recovery from depression.
To understand who we are and what we do, we always advise that the seeker read each of the items listed on our website menu. We also point them to past issues of our published Newsletters in the Newsletter Archives.
Our readers are treated to timely posts at our website center (www.depressedanon.cm) which include those topics which are most helpful to a person depressed as well as for one’s family members and friends.
Recently, we initiated an ongoing program of recovery for those persons who would like to start their own Depressed Anonymous group This program is one in which our DA members (SPONSORS) work collaboratively with those who choose this HOME STUDY PROGRAM OF RECOVERY. The program enables the person desirous of learning more about depression and their own unique experiences, to communicate with their sponsor by email. The participant answers questions from the Depressed Anonymous Workbook and reading from the Basic text of Depressed Anonymous. Each of the Twelve Steps is reflected upon as it relates to one’s life past and present. The participant’s responses are then emailed to the sponsor and a return mail by the sponsor answers those questions which the participant may have during the course study of their ongoing Home Study Program. The best part of the Home Study is that you can go at your own pace and get feedback from someone who has lived the program in their daily life!
If you choose to start a group that is entirely up to you and there is no obligation to initiate a group in your locality.
So there you have it. You may discover things about yourself that you never know existed. And whatever questions you might have about the origins of your own experience may come to light during this program. The best answers are there in your own life experiences and your taking the time to reflect upon them by using the DA WORKBOOK and the DA BASIC TEXT.
A participant will need the two books mentioned above for the program of Home Study and these are used in the group program. You can purchase both books as a unit from the Depressed Anonymous Publications Bookstore as well as purchase the books as eBooks from the Depressed Anonymous Publications Bookstore onsite at www.depressedanon.com.
If for whatever reason you are financially unable to purchase these books, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will contact you privately about the matter. Our main concern is to get these positive materials in the hands of those who want a way out of the prison of depression.
