  Depression

Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad, especially executives and leaders of their industry that must face a variety of challenges in their day-to-day lives, but these feelings are usually temporary and pass within a couple of days. However, when these types of feelings linger and begin to interfere with daily life and normal functioning or begin to cause pain or interfere not just to them but to other around them, it may be Depression and it is critical to contact us for a comprehensive evaluation and effective treatment. Depression is a common but serious illness, and those who experience it need treatment to get better.

Many people with a Depression never seek treatment. But the vast majority, even those with the most severe depression, can get better with treatment. Intensive research into the illness has resulted in the development of medications, psychotherapies, and other methods to treat people with what otherwise can be a personally and professionally disabling disorder.
 It is important to know that the speed of recovery as well as being able to fully recover back to one's normal baseline depends on how soon after onset that treatment is delivered.

People with depressive illnesses do not all experience the same symptoms. The severity, frequency and duration of symptoms will vary depending on the individual and his or her particular illness.

Symptoms of Depression

  • Persistent sad, anxious or "empty" feelings
  • Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness and/or helplessness
  • Irritability, restlessness
  • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable
  • Fatigue and decreased energy
  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering details and making decisions
  • Insomnia, early–morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
  • Overeating, or appetite loss
  • Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
  • Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment

Depression, even the most severe cases, is a highly treatable disorder. As with many illnesses, the earlier that treatment can begin, the more effective it is and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.
