The Aide's Role in Understanding Depression

Professional Type: Aide Inservices
Date: 12/14/17
Time: 2:00 - 3:00 pm
Location: Webinar

The CDC estimates that one in ten adults in the United States reports depression. About 25 million Americans will have an episode of major depression this year alone but only half of them receive treatment. Depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide and represents a public health challenge. This disease may be experienced by people of any age group, any nationality or any socioeconomic level. Many times depression is not detected and therefore goes unmanaged. This presentation will focus on the manifestations of depression that patients may exhibit and the aide's role in caring for the depressed patient.
