While it is clear that stress can make depression worse, it’s never been clear why this is. Professor Owen Wolkowitz, a professor of psychiatry at University California San Francisco, explores the biological connection between stress and depression.
Mental health, managing, and living with depression, is an area of very personal interest to me. Although I have not, so far, made it a focus of my published writing, I have never hidden the fact that I have had, and still do have, to deal with depression. I am pleased to find that Dr Wolkowitz, is a contributing author to, Natural Medications for Psychiatric Disorders: Considering the Alternatives. He is well known, and widely respected as an author on numerous topics related to mental health, psychiatry, endocrinology, and pharmacology.
I am grateful to University of California TV for this video.
