"With the new research… There is no Plan B. There is nothing else one can do to treat depression other than what we already have, which is evidence-based,” says psychiatrist Dr. Nahid Dave. “With serotonin becoming an almost-euphemism for joy now, several internet posts about the neurotransmitter serve a far more vital purpose – they are a coping mechanism,” The Swaddle noted earlier.

Further, “When you give depression a biological theory, it reduces the stigma to a great extent, because it becomes like any other physical illness. So there’s more acceptability,” Dr. Dave says.

A lot of times people think ‘I should’ve, I could’ve, I must’ve,’ and parents go through a guilt trip when it comes to their kids.”
