Depression - A Growing Epidemic

Major depression is the most common mood disorder worldwide. It is the number one reason people miss work or school. It knows no cultural, social or economic barriers and is largely misunderstood.


Dr. Nedley has researched the epidemic of depression sweeping society. He has discovered that one in three patients seeking medical help is plagued by depression. Through his ongoing study of the latest scientific research related to diseases of the mind, combined with years of clinical experience, Dr. Nedley committed himself to finding the root causes of depression rather than just anesthetizing the symptoms with medication. In the Nedley Depression & Anxiety Recovery Program, Dr. Nedley helps participants develop an insightful and in-depth comprehension of their body’s physical, mental and spiritual functions.


Training the Trainer is designed to educate people who want to plan and hold a successful Nedley Depression & Anxiety Recovery Program in their community. The program will train the Associate Directors and Facilitators to recognize the 10 major causes of depression, as well as the 10 ways of distorted thinking that can lead to depression and other mental diseases.


Training the Trainer will help you to:

  • Have the confidence and know how to help those suffering with depression
  • Be able to coach others how to understand and manage their emotions
  • Learn the secret on how to make permanent lifestyle changes
  • Be capable of teaching depressed people simple coping skills
  • Guide others in recognizing destructive or distorted thoughts
  • Lead others in how to recover and grow after suffering loss
  • Be able to implement a Nedley Depression & Anxiety Recovery Program in your community, church or school


An Associate Director is responsible for planning the overall program, leading Facilitators and program volunteers, and efficiently organizing and executing a Nedley Depression & Anxiety Recovery Program using the resources and guidelines provided. The Associate Director will provide a program that will help many in their church and community to overcome depression.


A Facilitator leads the small group discussions, motivating the depressed individual to establish and maintain a strong physical exercise program, eliminate negative habits of body and mind, develop healthy eating patterns, and get more out of the day by enhancing brain function. They will also assist the Associate Director with anything he or she may need.
