Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions, affecting more than 16 million Americans each year. Depression can happen to anyone of any age, race or sex and causes disturbances in every aspect of daily life. The reality is that only about one-third of those suffering from depression seek professional help. Understanding depression and the symptoms can help lead to successful treatment and remission.
What is depression?
Also called, “clinical depression” or “depressive disorder”, depression is a mood disorder that causes distressing symptoms that affect how you feel, think and handle daily activities. While it is natural to feel sad from time to time but depression is a chronic condition that affects sleeping, eating and working for a significant amount of time. While depression does not look the same for everyone, it is a very serious matter and can be seriously debilitating if left untreated.
