Encore: Perfectly Hidden Depression

Depression is experienced by many in the United States -approximately 9 percent of the population-, yet there remains a strong stigma against revealing depressive symptoms or being treated for it. This is one of the factors helping to create a phenomenon of hiding depression. Dr. Margaret Rutherford has been researching what she terms Perfectly Hidden Depression, and will talk about how someone with PHD adopted such a strategy, what it looks like in daily life, what doctors and therapists need to look for in order to treat it, and how someone with PHD can change to have a healthier life.
