Video Description

One question that frequently comes up is about clinical depression and genetics. This means, if you have been diagnosed with this illness, how much of it is due to things like your lifestyle, chronic stress, other medical issues, and even substance abuse? And, how much is due to the genes that you inherited from your parents? Dr. Glenn Archibald specializes in treating patients with depression. His practice is located in Anniston, halfway between Birmingham Alabama and Atlanta.
