Understanding Anxiety, Depression & Addiction

There is no doubt that mental illnesses must be destigmatized and treated like physical illnesses. Thus, just as the physical symptoms of pain, weakness, or dysfunction must be evaluated for root causes, so too must the mental symptoms of anxiety, depression, and addiction.

However, even more than our physical body, our brains are exquisitely “neuroplastic” and ever changing, leading to the question: what is normal and what isn’t? In this fascinating talk, Dr. Kang will explain how the brain works, specifically looking at symptoms of anxiety, depression, and addiction as “signals” to produce greater change. Kang will also provide powerful, evidence-based communication and lifestyle “prescriptions” for health, happiness, and resilience.
