Becoming Wildly Resilient: Understanding Anxiety and Depression
Kim Releford, LCSW, a mental health therapist with UK HR Health and Wellness, joins host Jakob Hester to discuss two of the most common mental health conditions: anxiety and depression. In this episode, you'll learn about the relationship between anxiety and depression; the signs and symptoms of each and how we can recognize them in ourselves; how the stigma is lessening but still persists; and when to seek professional help and what you can expect when you do. Kim also shares tips for managing anxiety or depression, plus how we can support mental health in the workplace, regardless of whether or not it is you or a co-worker who is experiencing a mental health condition.
