With a focus not only on the trauma and complications of adulthood but also on those from childhood that may even lend to patients’ current struggles, this episode delivers a dose of education and scientific study to the everyday brain health issues that plague so many of us. Whether you’re caught up inside depressed through quarantine, or forced to work in the middle of a pandemic spiking your anxiety, maybe you’ll find some relief in what the doctor has to say.Youtube Link to This EpisodeDr. Amen's WebsiteDr. Amen's Instagram
