Living through depression can feel like being in an emotional prison, but there is a way out, at least for some.

A new study discussed on our Research Digest analysed survey data from 20,000 Canadians, which showed that 2528 individuals had previously been diagnosed with major depression.

Body:

Depression is complex and influenced by many factors, but the way depressed people think is a likely contributor to the disorder. Depression is often associated with cognitive biases, including paying more attention to negative than positive events and recalling them more easily. People with depression also tend to ruminate over perceived failures and criticism, and they are extra sensitive to negative feedback.
