The most common mental illness is depression, yet there are many misconceptions about this illness, including what causes it, who is at risk, and how it manifests.

For Suicide Prevention Month, join this seminar tailored to academics and researchers in the biological sciences about the biological basics of depression.

You’ll hear about the:

  • Prevalence of depression in the general and academic populations
  • Signs and symptoms of depression in academic settings
  • Science underlying the causes and treatments of depression

This event is hosted by Gladstone’s Counseling and Wellness Center and Dragonfly Mental Health, a non-profit organization designed by scientists for scientists to improve the mental health and wellness of scientists in academia. Dragonfly Mental Health develops, deploys, and evaluates evidence-based strategies to produce a sustainable mental health culture in higher education.
