Cognitive Model for Depression

Cognitive Model for Depression – FREE CBT

In today’s post we’ll discuss the Cognitive Model for Depression. In order to begin making changes to your mental health or mental health challenges, you want to try to understand what’s going on. We’ll take a look at the patterns and work to understand what’s perpetuating the mental health challenge.   This is the third in a series of FREE CBT vlogs we will be publishing, to help you with some self-help Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

These videos are meant to be self-help style videos. If you feel unsafe, I recommend you call 911 or go to an emergency room. If you’re feeling overwhelming emotions but you’re still feeling safe, it may be time to call a therapist to get some help with that. These videos are designed for you to be able to do on your own, in situations that are less intense.

We recently shared several posts about the Cognitive Model in general, and today’s video will get more specific by zoning in on depression:
