Check out this webinar from the Foundation's 2016 series featuring John Winkelman, MD, PhD, of Massachusetts General Hospital, a certified RLS Quality Care Center.

Depressive disorders are common in adults living with RLS and are treatable. The likelihood of developing depression in adults with RLS is increased by 2-4 times when compared to other adults.

In this webinar you will learn to recognize:
· Signs of depression
· Management Strategies
· When to seek a professional opinion

All webinar archives can be viewed in the Members Only portal of our website at www.rls.org.
