According to WebMD, symptoms of depression severe enough to warrant medical intervention affect up to half of all people living with MS.It's Not All in Your Head is a cognitive-behavioral approach to overcoming the depression, anxiety and stress that goes hand-in-hand with MS. Dr Farrell helps individuals and their families develop a better understanding of the effects that MS has on mood levels and anxiety and offers a plan of simple remediation in a self-help format.
