Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the world, and today, it’s something that we’ve grown more comfortable talking about as a society. But just how much do we understand what depression is? Is it caused by a “chemical imbalance” in the brain, as has been commonly suggested or is the theory now dead as was reported in a recent research review? Consultant psychiatrist Dr Ravivarma Rao Panirselvam joins us on this episode of Mind Matters, to help us better understand this common but complex condition.
