Depression

Did you know that almost 7% of the U.S. population is diagnosed with depression?

Clinical depression is a serious condition that negatively affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. In contrast to normal sadness, clinical depression is persistent, and significantly interferes with daily life. Untreated, symptoms can last for weeks, months, or years; and if inadequately treated, depression can lead to other health-related issues. Symptoms include: a depressed mood most of the day, every day; diminished interest in daily activities; changes in appetite and sleeping patterns; fatigue; restlessness; anxiety; feelings of worthlessness or helplessness; difficulty concentrating; increased alcohol or drug use; thoughts of death or suicide.
