Finding happiness after depression.

24 August 2016

Living through depression can feel like being in an emotional prison, but there is a way out, at least for some.

A new study, discussed on our Research Digest, has analysed survey data from 20,000 Canadians, which showed that 2528 individuals had previously been diagnosed with major depression.

It found that two-fifths of this group were now fully recovered, meaning that they had been completely free of mental health problems for over a year and had felt happy or satisfied with life on an almost daily basis in the preceding month.
