Depression Triggers

What triggers depression and how can it be treated?

In May 2019 Cheslie Kryst was the oldest woman to be crowned Miss USA.  She was 30 years old.  This past January, she took her own life… jumping from her 29th floor apartment in midtown Manhattan.  This week, in a Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett-Smith,  Kryst’s mother, April Simpkins spoke about her daughter’s struggle with depression. On this Wellness Wednesday… we talk about depression and what triggers it.
