An Exploration of Depression

It is estimated that over 17 million American adults suffer from clinical depression annually. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Depression is a common but serious illness, and most people who experience it need treatment to get better. Manifested in several different forms, depression can be affected, perhaps even caused by, genetics, environment, alterations in biochemistry, or an illness of mind or body. In short, depression, like most illnesses involving the brain, is as individual as the people who have it. Whatever its origin, depression not only impacts all aspects of the patient's life but the lives of their family, friends, and co-workers.

This site offers a brief and understandable overview of the symptoms, causes, and treatments of depression. It is not intended to be used to diagnosis, advise, or treat anyone. And no information on this site, or links offered to information on this site, should be considered or used as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
