Quarterly Essay 18
- The Worried Well: The Depression Epidemic and the Medicalisation of Our Sorrows
- By: Gail Bell
- Narrated by: Gail Bell
- Length: 2 hrs and 41 mins
In the second Quarterly Essay of 2005, Gail Bell investigates Australia's depression epidemic. Why, she wonders, do well over a million Australians now take anti-depressant drugs? This is a fresh, frank and independent look at the depression culture and the move to medicalise sadness. Bell examines how the prescription culture operates, scrutinising the role of big drug companies and GPs and talking to those who take - and don't take - the new anti-depressants, from anxious students to lonely retirees.
