Expert on depression will speak

By
February 24, 2011 |

NAMI-Yolo plans its monthly potluck dinner meeting from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday. Dr. Mason Spain Turner will give a talk on “Am I Depressed? If So, What Now?”

Turner is chief of the department of psychiatry at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Francisco and assistant director of regional mental health and chemical dependency services for Kaiser Permanente, Northern California.

Turner graduated from Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. His medical degree is from the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center/Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Turner completed his residency in psychiatry at Harvard University Medical School through Massachusetts General Hospital and McLean Hospital, in Boston. As a clinician, he specializes in addiction medicine and treatment of personality disorders.

Differentiation is the first order of business for the psychiatrist, Turner says. A major depressive disorder has biochemical underpinnings. Grieving, adjustment reactions or anxiety related to major stressful events do not. He will share what kind of information he seeks out with patients to differentiate and diagnose. Turner teaches a course in interviewing patients to first- and second-year medical students.

Treatment strategies for people with chronic depression are diverse and not limited to a medication plan, Turner says. He will discuss different kinds of psychotherapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy and the more recently developed “behavioral activation.”

Mental health consumers, family members and interested local residents are welcome at the free meeting, which takes place in the César Chávez housing complex conference room, 1220 Olive Drive, Davis. The conference room is in the office building at the end of the parking lot. Park only in spots marked César Chávez, not Lexington Apartments.

A potluck dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. and the program follows at 7:30 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share if they can, but all are welcome even if they can’t. Those with last names beginning with A-H are asked to bring a salad, I-P a dessert and Q-Z a main dish.

NAMI-Yolo, a chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, provides advocacy and support for people living with mental illness, and education and awareness of mental health issues for all people.
