Christian Webb Shares Ways To Understand Sadness

Depression is often described by folks experiencing it as a sadness that encompasses your life, impacts your day-to-day activities, and limits your functioning as you’d normally want to. It’s a condition known for its feelings of hopelessness and often worthlessness—and is misunderstood by many as something “you can snap out of.”

Depression comes in many forms, can be short-lived or long-lasting, and can affect people of all ages, genders, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds. So how can we better understand ways to support ourselves and others through depressive periods? And when should we reach out for help?

Join us as Christian A. Webb, PhD, explains the intricacies of depressive disorders, shares signs and symptoms that may point to depression, and answers audience questions about how to make it through darker days.
