Anthony Feinstein from the University of Toronto: Taking a Closer Look at Depression in Multiple Sclerosis
JUNE 22, 2016
Patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis may develop depression as a result of the diagnosis but there is also research being done to show that depression can be part of the disease rather than as a result of it.
Anthony Feinstein, MD, PhD, from the University of Toronto discussed some of the work he is doing in this field during the annual meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers in Maryland. While there are mental health professionals who specialize in treating patients with multiple sclerosis Feinstein said it is important for psychiatrists and psychologists alike to be aware of the condition so they can provide their patients the best care possible for their depression.
