-- Sydney, NSW, Australia, February 04, 2015 /PressReleasePing/ - By 2030, the World Health Organization predicts depression will account for the highest level of disability of any physical or mental disorder in the world. Author Skye McKenzie raises an important question: "Are all these people clinically depressed or are doctors simply causing these figures to be skewed through misdiagnoses?"
As McKenzie will point out, antidepressants are a $12 billion industry in the U.S. alone, where highly successful direct-to-consumer advertisements inform consumers that antidepressants correct a chemical imbalance in the brain. Yet, according to a report from the American Psychological Association, depression in women is misdiagnosed approximately 30 to 50 percent of the time.
The author of Forty Days to Breakthrough, McKenzie can explain the critically important difference between clinical depression and circumstantial depression and why no amount of antidepressants will ever cure circumstantial depression. Invite her to answer such questions as:
. What is the No. 1 cause of circumstantial depression?
. What are the two questions you need to ask yourself to determine if your depression is clinical or circumstantial?
. What causes the winter blues? Is it ever just the cold?
. How can taking a small step—even a symbolic one—be more effective than taking an antidepressant?
. What roles do community and support have in overcoming depression?
