Families & Depression
William Beardslee, MD - Harvard Medical School
Nadine Kaslow, PhD - Emory University
This task group was formed in light of the substantial evidence linking familial involvement to both depression onset and recovery. Research into this relationship could explore ways family support can decrease the chance of relapse in patients with depression in addition to means of supporting the family members themselves.
Formed in April of 2012, the Families & Depression Task Group currently has 11 members.
