Watch this one-hour presentation and you will learn about the perceptions, risk factors, thinking styles and behaviors that lead to depression and what you can do to recognize, manage, and even prevent future episodes of depression.


Michael was invited by the Australian Psychological Society to give this talk to the general public about depression in 2018. This presentation remains highly relevant and in fact, even more so now that the serotonin hypothesis (the chemical imbalance theory of depression) has been all but disproven.
