On today’s show, Dr. Emily is joined by clinical psychologist Dr. Margaret Rutherford to talk about her new book, Perfectly Hidden Depression and how it can affect your relationships – including the one with yourself.

They discuss where the line is between perfectionism and using it to mask depression, how to recognize the signs you or a loved one might have perfectly hidden depression, and why people need to do their emotional work – because having emotions doesn’t make you weak.
