Radio Program IN YOUR RIGHT MIND Explores the Evolution of Depression in a New Broadcast on 790 AM KABC1:31 AM
The broadcast discussed the evolutionary nature of depression, its impact on mental health, and how it has become a major health issue for people age 15 to 44 in the United States.
One of Sunday's panelists was Nancy Joseph, PhD. a licensed psychologist who currently serves as the site training director at Sovereign Health of San Clemente.
"The basis of depression is an evolved function even if measurable," Dr. Thomson said. "If depression wasn't an illness, then you'd have a normal functioning system that isn't broken. But when we get depressed our attention is the problem, we can't feel pleasure, concentration is reduced, and the amount of sleep is increased. Our findings show that cognitive behavioral therapy works well in treating many of depression disorders."For those who would like to follow the broadcast, the show is available on demand at InYourRightMind.com.
