When our bodies feel sick, or we’re in physical pain, asking for help is an easy thing to do. When it comes to coping with or getting treated for mental illnesses like anxiety and depression, it doesn’t always feel so easy, and millions go undiagnosed. How can you know when your everyday reactions and difficult emotions might be something more? What can be done to diagnose and manage these symptoms? Start with Lara Jakobsons, PhDPsychologist at NorthShore, who will be taking questions and providing expertise on anxiety and depression, including symptoms, current forms of treatment and therapy and the different specialists who can offer support. 

  Please submit an early question for Dr. Lara Jakobsons.
