The Digital Age of Depression: Warning Signs That a Virtual Colleague Needs Help

The business world has gone virtual, and it looks like this may be the “new normal” for some time to come. A predominantly remote workforce isn’t all bad: the daily rat race is calmer without a bumper-to-bumper commute, and our home is arguable more comfortable than our cubicle or office. However, the downside to work-from-home culture is the lack of social interaction we get from being in close proximity to our colleagues. How can we replace the social and emotional support that we receive from the people we rely on during times of high...

Depression & Anxiety Amongst College Students: The Impact of Covid-19 of College Kids

The current pandemic has caused hardships and stress for everyone, and college kids are not exempt. This population is experiencing anxiety and depression just like everyone else—except the lack of access to mental health care is a real barrier to treatment.

As Stress Rises, So Does Depression & Anxiety

Anyone with a pulse will be unsurprised that stress levels are rising across Boston and, well, most everywhere else. After all, the global Covid-19 pandemic continues to surge in seemingly inverse proportion to the flagging national response. This means that no one knows whether children will return to school this fall or whether remote workers will head back to their desks any time soon. For some, this is a relief, but for many others transforming the home into a school, office, and bunker has been too much to bear. Burnout is on the rise,...

4 Things to Know About Treatment-Resistant Depression (Hint: There is Hope)

Treatment-resistant depression is just that: depression that persists, failing to respond to several depression treatments. About one third of those diagnosed with depression experience treatment-resistant symptoms, or, to put that into perspective, about 6 million people. This population suffers from constant feelings of sadness and loneliness, trouble sleeping, perpetual fatigue and even suicidal thoughts…with hope fading away each time a new depression treatment fails them. To be diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression, a patient...

Reduce Your Risk of Developing PTSD in the Post-COVID World

The COVID-19 pandemic is leaving a wake of devastation in its path. This invisible enemy has created many challenges that we have had to navigate, from the fear of being infected and worrying about our loved ones’ safety to the unprecedented unemployment rates and financial insecurity. With all there is to worry about, the potential for developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) if probably furthest from people’s minds.

Ketamine for COVID-19: Could Ketamine Interrupt Inflammation & Alleviate COVID-19 Symptoms?

These days, a lot of controversy swirls around proposed treatments for Covid-19. Politicization of the pandemic has clouded our ability to evaluate information and too myopic of a focus has left unintended consequences outside the frame. Certain drugs that may work against Covid-19 are gaining widespread coverage while others are drowned out by bloated media speculation. Ketamine and naltrexone are notable examples. Both developed in the 1960s, ketamine was first used to start anesthesia while low-doses of naltrexone were used to reduce pain...

We Know that Nature Eases Anxiety, But How Can Nature Keep Us Calm at the Office?

For many of us in the workforce, we spend an inordinate amount of time inside, working in front of computers and holed up in meeting rooms. As a result of this, work in modern settings has been linked to many stress-related illnesses, such as depression and anxiety. It is estimated that workplace stress costs businesses around $190 billion in healthcare costs every year. When trying to address these issues, much focus has been placed on management practices versus the physical environment of the work place. Research has shown that including...

PTSD: It’s Not Just for Veterans

Despite popular belief, regular, everyday people—not just our nation’s veterans—can develop post traumatic stress disorder, PTSD. While it’s understandable that a wartime experience could cause trauma, there are also plenty of other experiences—experiences that happen in everyday life—that could also cause an equally dramatic psychiatric response. However, while the specifics of a traumatic event are important, the key is that the event must fundamentally conflict with our understanding of ourselves or of our environment: that is what causes...

In fact, we’d wager that not a single person has lived a life untouched by a tightness in the stomach, tense muscles, a racing heart, or any other one of anxiety’s myriad of symptoms. This is because anxiety is a normal, even necessary part of life. It is the body’s alarm system, alerting us to potential dangers.
