Depression can look and feel different from one person to the next — let our experts help.

What is Depression?

Depression can affect how you thinkfeel, and behave. Clinically elevated symptoms are often prolonged (2+ weeks), cause significant levels of distress, and greatly impact your ability to function in your everyday life. Here are some examples of some of the different ways we may feel depressed.


Depression can make it difficult for you to focus or concentrate, pessimistic in the way you interpret your experiences, and lead to thoughts of death or suicide.


In addition to persistent feelings of sadness and/or a disinterest in previously enjoyed activities, depression can make you feel hopeless, worthless, alone, indifferent, ashamed, or unmotivated.


Depression can also impact your physical health or your ability to work, to take care of household responsibilities, or to develop and maintain meaningful relationships with those around you. In general, the cause of depression is a combination of nature vs. nurture. There are several factors that can trigger depression; these include genetics, brain chemistry, environmental and external factors such as family issues, relationship problems, etc. It’s important to understand – depression isn’t a character flaw or weakness – it’s an illness caused by a biological vulnerability. And, it is possible to feel better.

Treating Your Depressive Disorder

The main part to understand about depression is that you can’t overcome it alone. You need a qualified professional (psychiatrist, therapist, or counselor) who can guide you in the journey to recovery. Depression is rarely cured with self-help methods and medication alone; it is important to work closely with your psychiatrist in order to achieve full recovery.

People who suffer from depression – whether mild, moderate, or severe — do not lack character strength or willpower, nor is it a sign of personal weakness. Depression is treatable with the appropriate protocols and support.
