SHADE has been designed to help people experiencing both depressive symptoms and who are drinking alcohol or using other drugs, and has been trialled in a number of clinical and research settings with over 350 Australians.
If you decide to use the SHADE program, you will be taken through a process of working out which parts of your current lifestyle might be distressing, worrying, or upsetting you. You can then access a range of tips, informationand strategies to help change these particular part, and develop a lifestyle that is more in line with your goals, wants and needs.
You can only access the SHADE program in collaboration with a recognised health professional or SHADE clinician. This person will be able to provide you with the login details required to get started on the program.
