Let’s start with an introduction. My name is Laura and I am a current MSc student in neuroscience and future PhD in psychiatry. In these last years, I have come to realize how little communication there is between scientists and the rest of society. Science is always advancing, creating new tools and obtaining new knowledge that can be of use to everyone, or that can pose new ethical questions on which society as a whole should have a say.

Let's not hold back here. Depression is completely shattering. It shatters relationships, families; LIVES.

More over thinking. More just 'wanting to die' and 'I can't do this anymore'.

You may make some routine changes to make things a tad bit better.
