Understanding Depression – Wednesday 29th June, 7-8pm.
Depression is slowly becoming less stigmatised and better understood due in part to high profile individuals coming forward and sharing their experiences publicly. This is fantastic as depression can have devastating consequences if it is ignored or help is not sought. Strikingly, around one third of the population appear to be immune to depression. What do they do differently? And can we use those insights to help treat this common struggle?
