Here we take a closer look at the fine print. This course is not a substitute for professional in-person assessment and treatment - it's more of a talking self-help book. We strongly recommend you discuss any mood difficulties you may have with your physician or other health provider. If you are suffering from a mood disorder that is particularly intense, you may find the strategies recommended in the course difficult to put into practice. Finally, watching videos does not alleviate depression. Only by putting the strategies into practice can a benefit be obtained. To this end we include an extensive workbook you can print out and use as you go through the course.
