60 Minutes 2/19/2012: Helping Unemployed, Depression Treatments, And Chess Superstar

60 Minutes tonight focuses on helping the long term unemployed, new treatments for depression, and an interview with the Mozart of Chess. Many Americans have found themselves in a tight spot and have been unemployed for over a year. In that time, skill sets have changed and some have realized that it is going to be a long process to get another good job. Scott Pelley will be reporting on a new program designed to get these millions of people back into the workforce. Leslie Stahl will be focusing on new revelations in fighting depression. One Harvard Psychologist is saying that the chemicals in the popular depression fighting drugs are not what is really helping. He says it is basically the placebo effect where our body tricks itself into thinking the drugs are working. Finally, Bob Simon interviews the world’s number one chess player Magnus Carlsen. 60 Minutes airs at 7pm eastern time on CBS.
