Can Depression Affect Memory, And What Can I Do About It?

Question: Can depression affect memory, and is there something I can do about it?

Answer: Depression clearly affects our ability to learn things and recall them later. And very commonly people will present to the doctor with both memory problems and problems with mood. It's very important to tell your doctor if you're having symptoms of memory change or symptoms of depression because medication is available, psychotherapy is available, and we know these approaches can be very effective.
