In “Psychology Behind the Headlines,” hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest Dr. Cortina Peters discuss a study from Taiwan revealing a significant genetic link in treatment-resistant depression (TRD).

Early Intervention is Crucial

The sooner treatment-resistant depression is identified, the better the chances of finding effective management strategies.

Medication Considerations

While early intervention is important, keep in mind that medication effectiveness might decrease with prolonged use. Dr. Peters emphasizes the best outcomes often involve medication combined with talk therapy.

Your Family History Matters

If you have close relatives with treatment-resistant depression, your risk is significantly higher. Sharing this information with your healthcare providers can help them tailor a more effective treatment plan.
