Depression can be a debilitating illness. Symptoms of depression can include impaired concentration, insomnia, diminished pleasure in things, and feelings of worthlessness. Untreated depressive illness is a serious risk factor in progressing towards suicidal thoughts and plans. If you or a loved one is experiencing these symptoms they are not alone.
One form of depression called Major Depressive Disorder affects about 25% of women and 10% of men in their lifetime. Those with Major Depressive Disorder experience episodes of at least 2 weeks of severe depression. There are other types of depressive disorders, such as dysthymic disorder (chronic low mood), and postpartum depression (depression following pregnancy). Depression can also be a manifestation of other psychiatric illnesses such as bipolar disorder and commonly occurs together with anxiety disorders.
