    Great interview! In the same manner we jump start our car after it is drained, I am a fan of anti-depressants for jump starting our human electrical systems. But we need to remember our bodies were telling us something about our life choices when we do so and make substantive lifestyle changes. Dr. Trussel’s points about investing in preventative measures so that we do not get drained in the first place is far too little discussed. Refreshing to see a mental health professional move beyond pathology and provide recommendations for thriving! Thank you for having him on your show!!!!
