Is it Grief or Depression?

What's the difference between grief and depression? When might a diagnosis of depression be warranted for a grieving person? 


Grief gets mis-diagnosed as depression a lot - even by medical and mental health care providers with lots of experience. Knowing the difference is helpful, whether you’re a client or a provider. 

This video is excerpted from a live monthly grief support group call with psychotherapist Megan Devine. To access the monthly call, join our membership community and unlock the entire archive of recorded sessions (that’s 100s of hours of advice from Megan!).
