We live in a world filled with material wealth, live longer and healthier lives, and yet anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and depression have never been more common. What are the driving forces behind these interlinked global epidemics? In this series, Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman discuss the recent scientific advances that have radically altered our understanding of depression and related disorders. They discuss the latest treatments and therapies that are offering hope to those suffering from depression including Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week, which runs from 13-19 May, is physical activity and exercise, highlighting the impact they have on mental health and wellbeing.
