Quite often people think that depression is a mental illness or disorder, and for those who have been in it, they have nothing good to say about it. But wait… according to some mental health experts, depression has a positive side. These “glass-half-full” specialists say that the symptoms of depression may actually be evolutionary adaptations. “One way to think about it is the natural problem-solving capacities of depression,” explains J. Anderson Thomson, MD, assistant director of the Center for the Study of Mind and Human Interaction at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

How can you use depression in a positive way? Can it teach you how to coop with different situation in life? Can depression be a tool to enhance your relationships? Can it be a motive to keep your relations healthy? Can this new understanding of depression lead people to new ways of treating depression?

Look at the most famous artists in history, Van Gogh, Picasso and Gustav Klimt and others; they all experienced severe depression, but look at the work they left the world? Co-hosts Jenna Smith, Sgt. Betsy Smith and Jennifer Breedon are not depressed, but they are focused on big picture work.
