This workshop was originally designed as part of an Australian Government funded project ‘Out of the Blues’, devised to provide better access to young people with depressive symptoms. The format of the workshop is straight forward, drawing on evidence from available research, using a video developed for another Australian Government funded project ‘Keep Yourself Alive’ which trained over 5000 community workers and 3500 family doctors across Australia.
