What We Do and Don’t Know About Depression

In this episode we dive into the roots of depression, how antidepressants work, and additional treatments that are proven effective at improving wellbeing and mood. The News Not Noise audience reacted with intense emotion when we reported on a recent umbrella study concluding that decades of research shows that a lack of serotonin is not the root driver of depression overall. So we decided to ask experts about the latest research on depression and interventions including antidepressants, psychedelics, plant based medicine, cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma therapy and more.

With no singular approach to treatment in mind, I speak to Dr. Philip Cowen, a Professor of Psycho-Pharmacology at the University of Oxford, and Dr. Samantha Boardman a Psychiatrist and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College, to hear their own learnings about depression and mental health treatment. I am also joined by writer, model, and actress Paulina Porizkova who shares her personal experiences with mental health and wellbeing.

The big takeaway: one size does not fit all.

This episode contains content about depression, anxiety, and mental health, which some listeners might find upsetting.
