What is Depression?

mind May 28, 2020

Depression is a disorder that affects more than 10% of the population over the course of their lives, but it continues to be poorly understood. Those with depression, and their loved ones, struggle to understand what they are experiencing. It can be comforting to learn that they are not alone in their thoughts and feelings.

The What is Depression educational video discusses symptoms, causes, and treatments for depression in an attempt to help dispel negative stereotypes.
