Our immune systems aren’t just critical to our physical health. It turns out they may play a big role in our mental health, as well. And learning more about how these two aspects of our health are interconnected can help us develop more effective treatments for mental health conditions — and help destigmatize them in the process.

Please note: the following video discusses mental and physical health, but we are not doctors, and nothing we say should be taken as medical advice.
