Can depression be cured?

Can depression be cured?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

250 million people globally, and one in five UK adults, suffer with clinical depression and anxiety. The pandemic has both raised awareness of the condition, and worsened it. For such a widespread problem, little is known about how clinical depression works, or the ways it can be treated. A blended approach of art and science, often led by people who have personal and direct experience of depression, is making progress. For those who have it, is managing depression the best we can hope for, or could there be a cure? Join us for a ThinkIn in which we explore the latest scientific research, and what it means for mental health care.
