Roxanne Renee was in a severe, treatment resistant major clinical depression for four years until an experimental treatment snapped her out of it. She was told that there was a 90% chance she would experience a relapse. Determined to prevent this, she took active steps to modify her behavior and reduce the chance of relapse. Eight years later, she has not suffered a relapse.
In Landmark’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program, Renee decided to create a project that would assist others in educating them about depression and reducing the risk of relapse for depressed people. She created a seminar titled “Living Beyond Depression” which was held in Kansas City the night of June 24.
The seminar had a $10 suggested donation, with proceeds going to the Mental Health Association of the Heartland. The subtitle of the seminar was Seven Daily Lifestyle Choices to Support Wellness and Reduce the Risk of Relapse. A variety of presentations were followed by a Q&A panel discussion, which featured doctors, religious experts and other wellness professionals.
Renee now has seven upcoming Living Beyond Depression events scheduled for the Kansas City and Kansas areas. To find out more information, go to Roxanne Renee’s website.
