Holding Hands with Sadness & Recovering from Depression ft. Alexa Cordry LSW

Share This Post

How do you know if you’re sad or actually depressed? Can alcohol make me depressed? Will I be depressed forever if I identify with it? How do I know when to seek help or treatment? Great questions.

Andrea & Brooke had these questions and many more for Alexa Cordry, a Licensed Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Alexa walks Gold Ivy through the definition of depression, signs to look for, the role of medication, how to support someone who is struggling, the importance of connecting to our bodies for healing and recovery, and so much more. She also shares her beautiful story of strength, resiliency, sobriety, and recovery from depression.

Gold Ivy’s hope is to normalize these chats about mental health struggles and help each other embrace the spectrum of human emotion together.
