Feelings of Depression
Depression is a leading cause of disability. It is widespread and can be chronic or reoccur often. It interferes with daily functioning, reduces health, and lowers income. Approximately 2/3 of people with depression never get help. This is especially tragic because the prognosis for depression is good, that is, one is very likely to get better if one seeks help.
If you are feeling depressed, it is important to know you are not sick, and it is not your fault. Each of us deserves help when we get stuck. There are concrete and effective things you can do about it. You might feel you have little control and no options, and that you can't be helped or perhaps even that you don't deserve help. The good news is that feeling depressed is highly treatable.
