Senator John Fetterman’s hospitalization for depression has raised awareness of the condition. Our medical analyst explains what it is and how it’s treated. By Katia Hetter, March 17, 2023, www.cnn.com.
The article states that Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania is continuing to receive treatment for depression at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, after checking himself into the hospital on February 15. Fetterman’s disclosure has prompted questions regarding depression. CNN Medical Analyst Dr. Leana Wen states that it is very common to feel down from time to time and that major depressive disorder has specific diagnostic criteria. Dr. Wen states that an estimated 21 million adults in the United States had a least one major depressive episode lasting at least 2 weeks in 2020. Dr. Wen discusses risk factors such as a recent change in life circumstances. Treatment options can include anti-depressant medications and psychotherapy. The federal government last year launched the 988 hotline that provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people experiencing emotional distress.
