Dr. Henry Emmons

[Northfield News, November 03, 2010] Whether you’re already a full-fledged denizen of Prozac Nation or merely striving to maintain sanity in the wake of our economic earthquake, Northfield psychiatrist Dr. Henry Emmons has your prescription for peace.

It’s called “The Chemistry of Calm.” Like his best-selling first book, “The Chemistry of Joy: a Three Step Program for Overcoming Depression,” this second offering in a projected trilogy blends the latest in Western biochemistry and Buddhist philosophy, aiming to arm you against the evil twins of depression and anxiety.

Dr. Emmons is a co-founder and therapist with Partners in Resilience in Minneapolis and at the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.
