Certain situations in life can leave someone feeling depressed or anxious at times. But others may have on-going struggles with these feelings, making it difficult to carry on with everyday living. How much do we know about depression and anxiety and what resources are available for treatment?
Dr. Richard Kull, a psychiatrist with Masonicare’s Behavioral Health practice in Wallingford, will present a Lunch & Learn program entitled “Depression & Anxiety” on Monday, May 19, at the Wallingford Public Library, 200 North Main Street. Please join Dr. Kull as he discusses the conditions of depression and anxiety and the impact on patients and families. He will discuss how these conditions manifest, how they are managed by modern psychiatry, and what practical approaches and additional resources are available.
