Breaking Down Depression & Building Resilience presentations by Black Dog Institute and Scouts Victoria

Delivered by a trained presenter who has a personal experience of a mood disorder or of caring for a loved one, 'Breaking Down Depression' is a 40 minute presentation suitable for all Adults in Scouting including Rovers, Rover Advisors and parents of members. This presentation will provide accurate information about what mood disorders are, their causes, how to spot early warning signs, what to do and how to build personal resilience. The desired outcome is that people will be better informed, better equipped to identify warning signs and feel more comfortable seeking help and communicating more openly and honestly. Presentations are delivered for a gold coin donation which we ask you to make on the day. these are to cover significant travel costs of the Black Dog team to attend 13 presentations for Scouting. Additional Donations are appreciated and will be given to the Black Dog Institute in full.
