Abstract

Depression is a serious condition that affects the mind and the body. In fact, it can influence how quickly a patient recovers from an acute illness or surgery or how well he manages a chronic disorder. We'll help you understand how depression develops, how you can screen your patients, and how drugs and psychotherapy can help a patient lead a healthier, happier life.
