Having seen so many posts on AskMeFi about depression, anxiety and related topics, it seemed almost a duty to share this.
It's a free website (well, you have to register but it's anonymous and no cash changes hands) that's run by the health service here in the UK.
It takes you through a course of small modules which help you to identify unhelpful thoughts and feelings and use simple forms to analyse and develop new ways of thinking using the well-known CBT method.
I've often wanted to post this in an answer on AskMeFi, but realised it made more sense to post it once for everyone!
CBT is not a magic wand but it can help in addition to other types of therapy. Even though the guy who introduces the modules on this website has a nice, calming voice, probably seeing a real life doctor and counsellor is best!
