Research Aim: The aim of the studies was to find out whether an early preventive intervention may reduce the effects of depression, and whether a preventive consultation may decrease susceptibility to depression in the long term.

Research Methods: The following research tools were used in the studies: Two-Question Test (TQT) used for early detection of depression and its intensity, HS-20 Scale, Beck's Scale, Satisfaction Areas Scale (SAS) used among other things for examining the areas of satisfaction, Participants’ Assessment of the Preventive Consultation Questionnaire (PAPCQ), Demographic Questionnaire.

Results: The results showed among other things that on the TQT scale, HS-20 Scale, Beck's Scale, participants of consultations obtained high scores, which may suggest the occurrence of depression. It can be observed that people participating in the second consultation have statistically significantly lower level of depression compared with the level of depression observed among them during the first consultation. It can also be observed that the areas of satisfaction increased in seven cases.

Conclusions: It can be noted that consultations conducted within the framework of this research led to positive changes in people who had participated in preventive consultations. The following hypothesis can be formulated: the level of depression reduced and some areas of satisfaction may increase in the examined group due to consultations.
