Heart painted on wooden background

Johann Hari is the author of best-selling book ‘Lost Connections: Uncovering The Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions’.

In this fascinating Ted Talk, Hari reveals the information he discovered whilst researching his book. This includes being incorrectly told of a chemical imbalance causing him to experience depression and his quest to consider alternative reasons behind his pain. Hari considers how society, culture and life experiences contribute to people’s pain and most importantly, how people can overcome anxiety and depression by looking at and responding to our human needs in a variety of ways.
