Understanding depression, the invisible illness, with Amrita Tripathi

Unlike many other illnesses, depression can be an invisible one. According to the national mental health survey, 150 million Indians suffer from depression which requires immediate intervention. And yet, we don’t talk about it. Perhaps because we don’t know how to talk about it. In this episode, Sandip talks to Amrita Tripathi, the founder-editor of the Health Collective, who has recently co-written a book with psychologist Arpita Anand called ‘Real Stories of dealing with Depression’, which tries to open up conversations about depression and tell us that we are not alone in dealing with it or trying to help some about one who has it.
