Depression is so much more than sadness or loss of interest in life. Depression seeps into your being, negatively impacting your mood, relationships, physical activity, and ability to generally engage in life. It changes how you think, how you feel, and how you act. It is also self-perpetuating, where depression causes you to experience life in a way that creates further distress. It creates a downward spiral that can seem ever more difficult to escape.
Depression is treatable.
Despite how permanent and inescapable it often feels, depression is a highly treatable condition. It simply takes time, guidance, and evidence based techniques to help control the depressive symptoms.
