According to government statistics 100% of the population will, at some stage in their lives, be affected by depression, either directly, or by knowing someone who suffers. Yet many people find that standard psychotherapy and antidepressants aren't the whole answer to depression, anxiety and chronic pain. Recent reports indicate that antidepressants are less effective than sugar pills and only work for 50% of people. The most popular depression treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, does not work in the long term for the vast majority of people.
Up to twice as effective as other treatments the Uplift Program has a 94% success rate (in follow-up questionnaires up to 2 years later) and offers immediate and ongoing results. Find out how the Uplift can help:
