The Present and Future of Treatment for Depression

Almost seven percent of the U.S. population, 16 million people, had at least one major depressive episode in the last year. Many more family members, friends, and coworkers are affected.

What’s best practice for treating depression? And what’s on the horizon?

For answers, I turned to Dr. Thomas Insel, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the mental-health component of the National Institutes of Health. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and recipient of the Outstanding Service Award from the U.S. Public Health Service. I interviewed him today for my PsychologyToday.com article. HERE is the link.
