We introduced our More Than Mood Depression Symptoms Toolkit in 2017. Since then, thousands of people have been helped by the videos, fact sheets, webinar, and other resources offered in the toolkit. As part of our efforts to make the toolkit even more accessible to people who may not be tech-savvy and those who still need more background information about the cognitive symptoms of depression, we recorded a two-part video series called “A Guide to the More Than Mood Toolkit.”
In PART ONE, we talk with Dr. Ron Manderscheid, Executive Director of the National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Directors. Dr. Manderscheid discusses why family education around depression symptoms is crucial and why family caregivers should learn about how depression can affect cognition. In PART TWO, we guide viewers step-by-step through how to find the toolkit on the familyaware.org website and through each element of the toolkit.
