We invite you to read the accompanying ADAA Blog Post: Thriving with Anxiety and Depression.

Everyone wants to be happy, right?  If you struggle with anxiety or depression, though, you know first-hand how much these symptoms can interfere with your quality of life. The skills and strategies that help reduce these symptoms, while important, are not necessarily the same ones that actively promote “the good stuff” in life like wellbeing and happiness. Fortunately, the field of positive psychology has shed light on a lot of ways to actively promote thriving.

In this free webinar, you’ll learn the factors necessary for maximizing your wellbeing. You’ll also learn evidence-based strategies and interventions to help boost your wellbeing, happiness, and life satisfaction, despite anxiety or depression. You’ll walk away with a good understanding of what you need to thrive!
