Depression can be debilitating and disrupt every aspect of an individual’s life, including his or her health, relationships, education, and career. But it is treatable. Join George F. Wilson, MD, a board certified psychiatrist with expertise in the treatment of depression during this web chat designed to help viewers understand depression and learn how to determine if they, or loved ones, need help. Dr. Wilson will discuss the warning signs, symptoms, and risks associated with depression as well as treatment options.
