Loss, Grief and Depression
Mar 14, 2019 Season 2 Episode 2
Oliver Turnbull and Dr. Paul Keedwell
Can loss leading to grief lead to depression and what can be done about it?
Show Notes

This bonanza, super-sized episode covers in great detail the process of grief and how it links (or not) to clinical depression. We also take a look at Richard's story - a friend of both of us who lost his sight aged 24 and battled with loss and grief. But could he have been categorised as depressed in the medical sense?

This is "Why the long face?" in which we lift the lid on depression in a sometimes lighthearted and always non-judgemental way.

It is a conversation between two old friends, usually over a drink or two.

Paul has been a psychiatrist for 20 years and has done years of research into mood disorders and Oliver is a business consultant who has dealt with a lot of depression and its consequences in the workplace.

Cheers!
