About Depression Treatment
Everyone feels sadness or occasional blues at one time or another. These feelings, however, typically do not last more than a day or two. Depression, while common, is more serious and longer lasting.
When people are depressed they are not able to function as well in important areas of their lives, including at work and with their loved ones.
As a result, depression can cause social withdrawal, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness, and sometimes thoughts of harming oneself.
Many do not seek treatment for depression, but it is a treatable condition.
