How Lifestyle Changes Can Help Depression

Ron Henry

On Wednesday's Up to Date we hear about new research that suggests that lifestyle changes can make more of a difference than medicine when it comes to clinical depression.


  • Dr. Stephen Ilardi, associate professor of clinical psychology at the University of Kansas

Dr. Stephen Ilardi discusses depression at TEDxEmory:

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
