Treatment of Depression Disorders

Depression is one of the most common illnesses in the United States (it affects 1 in 6 people every year( but unfortunately it is a very misunderstood condition that is often confused with simply “being sad”. Sadness is not the same as being depressed – depression causes consistent periods of unprompted sadness and can be identified with feelings of unworthiness and self-loathing. 

Trying to overcome depression is very difficult to achieve on your own, but it is important to seek help as soon as you think you may be experiencing symptoms. Having access to compassionate and professional treatment options can help you understand what is happening and what needs to be done. 

What is Depression?

depressionDepression is a very serious medical condition that can cause negative changes to your mood, personality, behavior, and thoughts. It can cause feelings of prolonged sadness and lead to dissociation with normally enjoyable activities and relationships.

Some of the most common symptoms of depressive disorder are:

  • Sad, depressed mood for extended periods of time
  • Changes in appetite
