In this episode of the Psych Central Show, hosts Gabe and Vincent discuss the perception that mental health is fundamentally different from physical health. They discuss the lack of biochemical “markers” that can identify physical illnesses and whether we will ever have a simple lab test to diagnose depression, for example. They discuss how physical illness can affect mental health (and vice versa), and ultimately agree that the difference comes down to just one thing.

“Physical health can drive mental health; mental health can drive physical health; and they all live, of course, in one person.” ~ Gabe Howard
