After taking his first antidepressant at age 18, journalist Johann Hari wanted to know why he – and millions like him – still experienced depression despite medication and therapy. He spent three years traveling some 40,000 miles to interview more than 200 people about depression and anxiety. He found that depression can result from traumatic experiences, a toxic environment or chemical imbalances in the brain. Hari reports on the challenges of the traditional biological model of depression and offers meaningful strategies to help sufferers reconnect with the status and respect they require to give their lives meaning.
