Employee Well-Being Webinar: 'Understanding Depression'

Thursday, 29 September, 2022

Many people still believe that the emotional symptoms caused by depression are “not real,” and that 
a person should be able to shake off the symptoms. Because of these inaccurate beliefs, people with 
depression either may not recognize that they have a treatable disorder or may be discouraged from 
seeking or staying on treatment due to feelings of shame and stigma. As a result, many people with 
a depressive illness never seek treatment.

But the vast majority, even those with the most severe 
depression, can get better with treatment. Intensive research into the illness has resulted in the 
development of medications, psychotherapies, and other methods to treat people with this disabling 
disorder. This workshop will identify the symptoms associated with depression, possible causes and treatments.
