High functioning depression

We were joined by Sue Varma, MD, a Board certified psychiatrist, Cognitive behavioral therapist, Clinical Assistant Professor at NYU Langone, former 9/11 medical director at the World Trade Center Mental Health program at NYU, and Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, discussing “high functioning depression” during covid and beyond. She discusses the “4 Cs “ of coping and the #4msofmentalhealth. In this video, she touches upon stats, symptoms, cost to society and therapeutic approaches. One in four people live with a mental health condition (and these figures are now on the rise amidst the pandemic). Please share this with anyone who could benefit from learning about the warning signs and treatment options. High functioning depression is not often discussed medically, and due to their high level of outward performance, these individuals often fall through the cracks.
