    Depression and the Brain: A Treatable Disorder

    in Family

    Does depression affect adults only? No. For singer and songwriter Judy Collins, depression began in her teenage years and is as vivid to her now as it was then. For Collins, her depression led to alcoholism, which damaged her vocal cords and threatened her career.



    Can depression travel through families? Yes. In her particular case, Judy Collins described her depression as a family legacy. It affected her father, herself, and her son, Clark, who committed suicide in 1992. In fact, scientists are currently investigating the hereditary, genetic bases for depression.



    A Thousand Moms is releasing as a e-book, The Sourcebook of Brain Science. Knowledge of the brain is essential for parents, teachers, students, the general public to make good decisions, reduce the toll of suffering of patients and families.  Depression, manic depression, and schizophrenia are illnesses that originate in the brain, affect the brain, and also affect all those things most affect what we think of as human characteristics: our mood, our thinking, our behavior, our energy levels, our patterns of sleep, according to brain scientist Kay Redfield Jamison.
