Depression School

Depression School will help remove the obstacles that are holding you back from overcoming depression - so that you can gradually get better, beat this illness, and go on to live the life you want!

Hi there!

Danny & Mathew Baker from The Depression Project here, and as we so often hear from our 3,000,000+ person social media community, there are a lot of obstacles to overcoming depression, including:

  • “Therapy and counselling being too expensive."

  • “Having to wait weeks and weeks to see a therapist - and then not even finding the session(s) very helpful.”

  • "Lack of motivation."

  • "Lack of support and understanding from family and friends."

Now, if you're like most people with depression, then at least one (or perhaps all) of these obstacles apply to you - which means that right now, you are NOT receiving enough help to overcome depression.

And, this is a big, big problem, because as we also so often hear from our community, when you don't get the help you need to overcome depression, then:

  • At Best: You learn how to cope with your depression on a day-to-day basis, but you never actually overcome it - which means that even though you have some good days, your depression still always hangs over you, and is something you'll have to continue fighting for the rest of your life.

  • At Worst: Your negative thoughts become more and more dark, uncontrollable and torturous. Your self-esteem withers and withers until you feel completely worthless. Your ability to function diminishes and diminishes to the point where you can no longer work, leave the house or even get out of bed. You become increasingly isolated from your friends and family until you're all alone. All meaning disappears from your life, and you're left with nothing but depression.

However, at The Depression Project, we dream of a much better world for people with depression - and for this reason, we built Depression School: in order to help remove these obstacles to overcoming depression, so that you can gradually get better, beat this illness, and go on to live the life you want!

Launched in late 2021, Depression School is an online membership platform that already has over 5,000 members, and helps remove the obstacles to overcoming depression by:

  • Firstly, making Access To High Quality, Professional Help Much, Much, MUCH More Accessible!

    This is because for a very affordable price, Depression School gives you access to lots of different courses, books, and other resources that are created by amazing therapists to arm you with the direction, clarity, insight and the strategies you need to know in order to fight back against depression and ultimately overcome it.

  • Secondly, Depression School Makes Learning How To Overcome Depression As Easy And Convenient As Possible - Which Can Help You Overcome Lack Of Motivation

    After all, all of Depression School's courses, books and other resources can be accessed anytime you want them, anywhere you want them, and from any device you want (such as a computer, tablet or smartphone). Not only that, but Depression School members are also frequently emailed words of support and encouragement, as well as bite-sized, easy-to-digest strategies to overcome depression that can be read in 5 minutes or less.

  • Thirdly, Thanks To Depression School's Membership Community, You'll No Longer Feel Isolated, Alone Or Misunderstood!

As we hope you're beginning to see, Depression School really can help to remove the obstacles that are currently preventing you from overcoming depression - which like we said, can result in you gradually getting better, beating this illness over time, and going on to live the life you want!

Let's Now Get More Specific: Here's What You'll Start Learning To Overcome Depression!

  • You'll also learn how to replace these negative core beliefs with positive core beliefs (such as "I'm loveable", "I'm worthy" and "I'm a good person").

After completing this course, you'll know a wide variety of strategies to overcome all of your negative thoughts, including:

This course will help you to:

  • Overcome any shame that comes from feeling as if you have a "good life" and therefore "nothing to be depressed about".

Meet Depression School's Amazing Therapists!

Remember above, when we said that according to our 3,000,000+ person social media community, one of the biggest obstacles to overcoming depression was that after waiting a long time to finally get access to therapy, they didn't even find the sessions very helpful?

Well, Depression School helps to remove this obstacle, since not only can all of Depression School's content be accessed anywhere, anytime, but each therapist who contributes to Depression School is rigorously vetted - to ensure that only the best ones make it onto our platform!

In particular, the qualities we look for in our therapists include:

  • Being highly knowledgeable about their subject matter and exceptionally experienced in their field (of course).
  • Being warm, friendly and caring.
  • Having a genuine understanding of what people with depression and other mental health issues are going through - and being very compassionate of that struggle.
  • Being able to communicate really well, and explain difficult, complicated psychological concepts in simple ways for people to understand.

And, with all of that being said, we'd now love to introduce you to Depression School's therapists (with many more scheduled to join in the future)!

What Are People Saying About Depression School?

Since launching in late-2021, Depression School has welcomed over 5,000 people, and as you'll see below, the feedback we've received has been overwhelmingly positive!

(NOTE: To protect people's privacy given the sensitive nature of depression, all names in the testimonials below have been changed with each member's permission)

I've had depression for over 10 years, and thanks to Depression School, I can finally feel myself getting better. I have a routine where every day after work, I spend 20 minutes either reading one of the books or watching one of the courses, and over time, it's been making an enormous difference!

Sarah (Sydney, Australia), Member since September, 2021

Like most people with depression, I've never been able to afford the $100/hr or the $200/hr or whatever it is to get access to therapy. This always felt like an enormous barrier to me getting better, but Depression School is filling that void really, really well. In the three months I've been a member, I've already learned more skills to fight depression than I did in the two-and-a-half years before I'd joined. I now feel much more optimistic about my future, and am looking forward to getting more and more on top of my depression moving forwards!

Jessica (Ohio, USA), Member since October, 2021

I've only joined recently, but the "How To Overcome Your Negative Thoughts" course has already helped me immensely. I feel much more in control of my negative thoughts (instead of the other way around), which has resulted in me being better able to concentrate at work, feel more confident in social settings, and overall just feel much better than I did beforehand. Thanks a lot!

Joe (NYC, USA), Member since December, 2021

The "How To Restore Your Self-Worth After Mental Abuse" course has been literally life-changing. It's made me realise that the neglect I suffered over 30 years ago as a child actually was NOT my fault, and I can't even put into words how helpful that's been for me. Thank-you so, so, SO much!

Sandra (Bristol, UK), Member since October, 2021

Depression School is without a doubt the best purchase I've ever made! The therapists really know what they're talking about, and teach really actionable strategies that I'm able to implement. I'm definitely learning a lot - that's for sure!

Joe (Toronto, Canada), Member since November, 2021

I've been part of Depression School for less than two months, but am already seeing tremendous progress. The "How To Overcome Depression Shame" and the "How To Stop Comparing Yourself To Other People" courses were particularly eye-opening.

Sam (California, USA), Member since January, 2022

I've been a member of Depression School ever since enrolment opened up in September 2021, and I absolutely love it. Among other things, it's helped me develop good self-care habits, be much kinder to myself, think more positively, and finally start to see some of the worthwhile qualities in myself. Amazing!

Kim (Dallas, USA), Member since September, 2021

The Depression Project is not as well known in Germany as it probably is in English-speaking parts of the world, but I'm so glad I found them and the Depression School! Each course I've taken has been worthwhile, and I like that I can access everything anytime I need to. The Depression Project's customer support is also really quick and friendly, too!

Leo (Berlin, Germany), Member since February, 2022

Before Depression School, I never thought I would overcome depression. Now, I believe I can - and that eventually, I will.

Rose (Dublin, Ireland), Member since October, 2021
