Bupa Depression Positive Health Guide

For people living with depression, it offers practical advice and information to help you look after your health and find the support you may need to manage your condition.

According to beyondblue, the national depression initiative, depression affects around one million Australian men and women, including 100,000 young people each year. While we can all feel ‘down’ sometimes, depression is a health condition characterised by a sustained period of low mood that can affect your enjoyment of life and your motivation to participate in family, work, and other activities you once enjoyed.

Your Positive Health Guide for Managing Depression offers practical advice and information to help you look after your health and find the support you may need to manage your condition. It may also be a useful resource for family members and other people around you who want to know more about depression and how they can help.

‘The Depression Action Plan' is designed to help you manage your depression in consultation with your doctor. You can record your medicines and review how well your lifestyle changes are working.
