This self-help guide is intended for people with mild-to-moderate symptoms of depression.

This self-help guide aims to help you:

  • find out if you could have symptoms of depression
  • understand more about depression
  • find ways to overcome depression

This guide is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT helps you to examine how you think about your life, and challenge negative automatic thoughts to free yourself from unhelpful thought and behaviour patterns.
