The British Psychological Society (BPS) are releasing a new publication called 'Understanding depression' and are holding a webinar to discuss the topic.  

The webinar will cover:

  • Insight into the latest psychological perspectives on depression - why we become depressed, and how we can respond.
  • Sight of this exciting new British Psychological Society / Division of Clinical Psychology publication ahead of its official launch, with perspectives from the authors, poets, musicians, those with lived experience of depression, and others.
  • Appreciation of the commonalities of the human experience of depression
