Overcoming Depression gives you the support you need to see your way through depression and low mood. Self-assessment scales help you to determine if you have a problem with depression. Simple tools help you take control of your own recovery programme using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). An online catalogue offers recommended reading for depression and these books can be purchased as e-books for use within the app’s built-in e-reader.
This easy-to-navigate app comes from the publishers of the bestselling Overcoming book series. These books enable people with a range of common mental health problems and disorders to take back control of their life. Each guide is written by an expert practitioner and uses clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.
This app is totally free and is intended to support a course of therapy, or a guided recovery programme with a doctor, therapist or other healthcare professional. It can be used alongside the book Overcoming Depression or other self-help titles for depression.
The features in this app can be used at home or on the move, and with just a few minutes spent every day on these exercises, you will build a record of the tools and techniques that work for you and be able to set goals you can work towards over time.
Visiting www.overcoming.co.uk will also give you access to the wider catalogue of Robinson self-help publications, advice for other mental health conditions, and downloadable resources from our range of books.
