The depression module focuses specifically on depression as a mental health condition, which can exist in tandem with an intellectual or developmental disability. The module explains the symptoms of depression, what to do if an individual thinks they have depression and some strategies to address it. Finally, the module discusses some resources, which can be provided to an individual if they require support for their mental health.
The module ends with a story called Jerrod’s Story, which discusses a young man’s experience with depression. An individual can use the module on their own or with the support of a facilitator, or someone else.
