It’s normal to feel sad every now and again. But when you have deeper, more intense bouts with depression, it interferes with your daily life and relationships with loved ones. We can help you find your way out of the darkness by properly diagnosing and treating your depression.
Depression is not your fault. Major depressive disorder is a mood disorder, often caused by a chemical imbalance, that fuels constant sadness or even a lack of interest in life.
Like most mental illnesses, there is no cure for depression. But there is hope—with specialized care and treatment, you can find relief from your symptoms, reach remission and find your way back to life.
Depression is serious—and anybody who thinks or talks about harming themselves should be taken very seriously. If you or someone you love is having thoughts of suicide, call 911 and reach out to us right away.
Depression looks different for everyone. However, some common symptoms may include:
Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
Fatigue and decreased energy
Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness
Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex
Overeating or appetite loss
Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment
Persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” feelings
Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
