Join Dr. Matthew Stanford as he discusses how to assess for depression, the efficacy of available treatments, as well as recovery.
Depression is a common disorder with high lifetime rates, particularly in women, and those experiencing social adversity. It is a major cause of disability, and causes death both by suicide and due to raised rates of physical disorders. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic depression was a major public health problem.
In this presentation Dr. Stanford will discuss how to assess for depression and suicidal risk, the efficacy of available treatments, and the role faith can play in recovery.
