Most people experience depression or anxiety at some point in their lives. And oftentimes, they don’t know where to turn or how to help themselves feel better. In this week’s episode, I am speaking with Dr Ellen Vora - a board-certified psychiatrist, acupuncturist and yoga teacher that takes a holistic approach to helping her clients. Dr Vora believes in making lifestyle and dietary changes to ease mental health challenges before prescribing medication. In this episode, Dr Vora and I discuss the anatomy of depression and anxiety, and she also breaks down the differences between the two. We dive into how different generations react to mental health, how you can support others who are struggling and Dr Vora’s top tips for overcoming depression.
