Got an email from The happiness institute which I thought folks would appreciate being shared around. My only affiliation with THI is that I've done one of their short courses, I get their weekly email which I find chock full of good stuff, I've bought one of their books and I've got their top 20 happiness tips on my fridge! Anyway, they're doing a webinar 5.30pm EST(Australian) Thursday July 23rd 2009 . If you or a loved one have/are experiencing depression, I'm confident that the webinar will be worth listening too. Tell 'em robsalvv sent ya and maybe I'll get a discount to the next course! Cheers. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The Happiness Institute wrote: Depression can be debilitating and destructive.
