Depression is the feeling people have when they are “down” and sometimes hopeless about the future. When these feelings continue, they can interfere with daily functioning and over time, can have a negative impact on our mental and physical health. Depression treatment today is evidenced-based and highly effective.
Depression is a common problem and affects more than 300 million people worldwide. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in the year 2016, an estimated 16.2 million adults in the United States suffered from at least one depressive episode.
