The Prevention of Depression: A Missing Piece in Wellness
If you are here for the first time, click here for the tour.
Depression leads health care costs for business. Medical costs for a depressive disorder are 70% higher than for those who are not depressed, yet most wellness programs do not directly address either depression or its prevention. Thinking patterns, including pessimism, inflexibility, and mindless reactivity are risk factors for depressive disorders. Each episode increases the prospects for chronic depression. By learning the skills of mindfulness, optimism, and resilience, you can avoid depression and reduce the use of psychiatric medications. These healthy thinking styles also promote creativity, stress hardiness, and engagement in a psychologically healthy culture.
