How to Rethink Depression and Fill Your Potholes

Depression can be found in every gender, age group, and location. Estimates are that 121 million individuals world-wide are depressed; perhaps 20+ million just in the United States. If you have experienced a bout of depression yourself, situational or clinical, or have deal with a family member or friend who was depressed, you already know the toll this can take on everyone.


This seminar is designed to take another look at depression. Using the metaphor of potholes, it provides examples of potholes and contributors, along with gender differences. A two-pronged approach can be helpful in enhancing your ability to prevent depression (insofar as it is possible to do so). This can help in recognizing symptoms quickly, filling in personal potholes, and recovering from depression.


This seminar can be presented in approximately 50 minutes with additional time for questions, if desired.


Audiences who interested in an overview of depression, a way in which to rethink this condition, and strategies for prevention and recovery.

  • State working definitions for situational and clinical depression
  • Describe two gender differences for average age of onset and hormones
