Depression "To Be or not To Be"

Thurs 9th October, 3:20pm

The number of New Zealanders on antidepressants has doubled in the last six years, with 1.4 million prescriptions now filled annually. Depression is clearly a more commonly recognised disease than at any other time in New Zealand history, and the condition impacts IT professionals as much as anyone else.

Author Keith Lightfoot talks of his own experiences, including examining the types of mental and physical actions he's found have directly affected thinking and bodily health, while using a tested method, Positive Psychology, to deal with depressive thought patterns.
