Depression


Major Depressive Disorder, commonly referred to as depression, is a mood disorder that affects 350,000,000 people globally. Depression causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest that is more than just a case of the blues. It affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. But don't get discouraged. Depression can be managed and treated with talk therapy, medication, or a combination of both.
