The Science of Depression - Decoded

We’ve already told you about how depression can affect your life, but we never quite explained the science behind it.

Luckily, we don’t have to – the wonderful folks at AsapScience beat us to it. Created by Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown, The Science of Depression is under 4 minutes long, but perfectly describes what depression is, how it impacts the brain of the afflicted, and how it influences the person’s subsequent behavior. And, bless their hearts, they did it using colorful visuals to help us stay focused and pay attention.

As you may recall, depression “is caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, biological, and psychological factors – in other words, it has no single fundamental root. If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, it’s best to be informed about the specific condition, how it manifests, and if/how it can be treated”.

At Talkspace, we use  psychotherapy to help individuals deal with different forms of depression. For more information about depression and how to cope with it, text one of our therapists right now!”

We hope you enjoyed watching The Science of Depression. Check back with us later, we’ll have more cool stuff to show you!
