One of the first posts on this site was Johann Hari's TED talk Everything You Know About Addiction is Wrong. He is back again, this time speaking about the epidemic of anxiety and depression and revealing some profound insights and research.
One in five Americans is going to take a psychiatric drug in their lifetime. One in four middle-aged women is taking an antidepressant in the United States. My instinct was that it probably isn’t that our brains were just spontaneously malfunctioning.
What if it is less about biology than we thought? What if the old belief around "chemical imbalances" is incomplete or altogether wrong? Read Hari's interview below to learn more about the causes of depression and anxiety and the solutions that actually last.
