Now that I have THAT out of the way, this week begins a short series on dealing with depression. If you or a loved on suffers from depression, I hope you will find this information useful. If you do, please share it with others.
Depression is a major health issue. According to the World Health Organization, it affects over 120 million people. In the United States alone, in a recent year, there were over 30 million people using a prescription antidepressant.
There is no doubt, depression is very real.
After that, the information becomes murky and confusing. Is it a disease? Is it a moral defect? Is it a thought problem? Is it a chemical imbalance?
The answer is not so easy.
Nor is the treatment.
In this week’s podcast, I examine some of the truths and myths about depression. Please listen.
