Living the Life: Are you depressed?

Are you depressed?

If you said no, here's another question. Are you sure?

The next time you go to the doctor for an ache or pain, you may want to prepare yourself for a little heart-to-heart as well. The medical community is really starting to take more of a focus on depression, especially those who recently gave birth. All Botsford doctors are also screening their patients for mental health issues.

In this segment of Living the Life, we talk about the stigma of depression and how to beat it, and how to spot signals of depression in our loved ones. We're joined by Dr. Jay Inwald and Luke Goode, who has been diagnosed with depression.
