Wellness Land and Anti-Depressants, Part 3: The Problem with Science Influencers | Trisha Durham

In the final installment of this 3 part yoga series on wellness, mental health, and anti-depressants, Nikki chats with yoga teacher and movement educator Trisha Durham about the process that they went through to get a prescription for antidepressants and how social media influences our choices and perceptions of medication and mental health.

They discuss:

  • The different classes of antidepressants and how they figured out which one worked for them
  • Their process of getting a prescription from their doctor
  • The problem with science influencers or people who have large followings on social media who incorrectly represent research to sell you something (aka the Huberman effect)
  • Why citing a research paper doesn’t mean that the claim pertains to your situation or is factually accurate
