The Navigating Depression tool box

Additional ideas, information and resources

Congratulations on purchasing Navigating Depression, a set of 40 cards for building resilience, mental health and wellbeing.

Navigating Depression uses the metaphor of life as a journey, providing a framework for people to share their stories, learn and find meaning.

The terrain can be rough at times … we all need tools for the journey.

Now that you have the cards, you will be wanting some fresh and innovative ideas for how to incorporate them into your work.

In this toolbox, you will find:

  • the digital booklet containing detailed information about the types, symptoms, causes and treatments of depression, an explanation of the cards and the four suits, along with a wealth of ideas for using the cards in different settings
  • access to a digital set of the cards so you can use them anywhere, anytime
  • ideas banks, blogs, card hack videos, interviews and other support material.

We hope you enjoy browsing this page and are inspired by the stories of others who have used the cards. Don’t forget to explore the range of other supporting materials and information at your fingertips any time you need it.

This toolbox is exclusively for people who have purchased the cards. We will continue to add resources and ideas, so check in regularly to see what’s new!
