- All of us have off days at work. That's not unusual, but sometimes these off days can add up, and you start to feel sad, angry, distracted, or slowed down. How do you know when you are just having a bad day verses having a depression that needs clinical attention. When and where do you seek help? And how do you manage and lead a team at work when you are depressed? I'm Dr. Srini Pillay, a Harvard trained psychiatrist with a background in clinical psychiatry, brain imaging research, and executive coaching.
In this course, I want to share the most recent research on depression, so that you can apply it to your everyday life. You'll learn how to interact with colleagues, and manage your mood and fatigue too, and you'll also learn how to deal with your depression, to maximize your productivity at work. Keep a depression journal and take notes as you listen to each video, so that you can more easily recall and practice the tips that will help you manage your depression. Remember, if you are depressed you are not alone and there are many things that you can learn to do to lighten the load of this very challenging condition.
