If you or someone you love has been experiencing feelings of hopelessness, fatigue, altered appetite, sleepless nights, or even thoughts of suicide, you (or your loved one) may be suffering from depression.
Depression is not a character flaw, nor can it be willed away. When left untreated, your symptoms of depression can last for weeks, months or years. However, with appropriate depression treatment, most people with depression and certain other mood disorders can achieve a full and lasting recovery.
Signs & Symptoms of Depression
Clinical or major depression is more than just the temporary “blues.” Depression hurts – in body, mind, heart, spirit, and in all the areas where life holds hope, joy, and promise. If you are experiencing problems with eating, sleeping and concentrating, if your mood is interfering with your ability to participate in and enjoy relationships, your career, and your daily life, and if your ability to experience pleasure feels subdued or inaccessible, it is time to seek help.
