A few years ago Freddie Sorensen was running a successful business and apparently ‘living the dream’. Then he had a nervous breakdown and descended into a pit of psychological hell for a couple of years. It got pretty dark. While he was down there, in the darkness, he had no idea what was going on or what to do about it. Nor did his friends and family who were trying to help him. He wished so badly that he had some kind of ‘Depression for Beginners’ manual written just for him. There wasn’t one. But that’s what this talk is. It’s Freddie now (not currently depressed) talking to Freddie back then (suicidal) about what might be happening to him and what he might try to do about it. 

The talk is aimed at himself, but he’s hoping that anyone who might be trying to help someone who’s depressed, or anyone who thinks they might be depressed and doesn’t know what to do, might find it useful. 

This is the second in a series of three talks, the first being How I Helped Start a Revolution and the third, Depression for Winners, but you don’t have to have seen the other talks in the series for it to make sense. 

Earlybird tickets start at £7. Standard tickets are £15.
