Most of us know someone who has struggled with depression and a number of us have encountered depression in our own lives. The folks at AsapSCIENCE break it down pretty simply to help the complex science of depression feel a little bit more digestible. The video focuses on the genetic factors of depression as well as how the brain responds to events that can trigger depression. They make an important point in saying depression isn’t just something that people can “get over.”

A couple interesting tidbits. Did you know that animals can help people cope with depression? In some of our past posts, we have explored how mindfulness (part 1 and part 2) can help people cope with depression and we have discussed medications and depression. If you or a loved one would like guidance on mental health issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us to make a counseling appointment. Additionally, if you would like more information about what the counseling process for depression involves, you can read about depression counseling.
