John Grohol at PsychCentral points to an article on this topic at Anchor magazine. The Canadian-based magazine is in itself interesting — it’s tagline is “conquering depression” and appears to be a comprehensive site for anyone with questions about depression, or that suffers from depression. Topics included: Depression and — men, women, teens, research, healthy living, on call, destigmatizing, over 50, been there, and more. One of many things it includes is a blog.
Dr. Grohol points out that while he’s not “crazy about medicalizing depression” it does help people acknowledge that it is an actual treatable entity.
And definitely check out Anchor if you suffer from depression or know someone that does.
