Today we’re talking about seven major myths about depression. There are many more than seven but these are common questions I get or comments I hear out in public. So we’re going to set the record straight. In this episode, sponsored by Audible.com, we’ll answer questions about PostPartum Depression, PreMenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and depression’s connection with psychosis. So I hope it will be helpful and informative and you can be part of the solution to stopping the stigma.

The listener email is from someone who’s been dealing with a critical and volatile mother for many years. She’s learned much about how to set good boundaries, but has a disagreement with her therapist about how to handle an upcoming visit.  What happens if you disagree with your therapist?
