Talk on depression at Trader’s Hotel

Dr. Jojo Cruz talked to a group of around 100 family doctors and medical professionals about depression and how different illnesses can contribute to or be caused by this illness. The public, and even some medical professionals, do not recognize that depression and physical illnesses (such as diabetes, cancer, hypertension and others) are interrelated and play off each other.

Thus, recognizing the symptoms of depression early on can hasten recovery of a patient, or lessen the amount of pain he or she may be going through.
