What is depression?

Depression, or major depressive disorder, is a common and serious condition that negatively affects how you feel, think, and act. It’s estimated that approximately 280 million people in the world have depression. Depression can cause feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed, and a variety of emotional and physical problems.

Common symptoms

Depression can look and feel differently for everyone. Symptoms can range from mild to severe from person to person. Some common symptoms you may experience include:

• Feeling sad, down, or having a depressed mood
• Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed
• Changes in appetite
• Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
• Loss of energy/fatigue
• Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
• Feeling worthless or guilty
• Difficulty thinking, concentrating, or making decisions
• Thoughts of death or suicide*

*If you are experiencing thoughts of suicide call 911 or 988, the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.

There isn’t just one cause for depression. A person can develop depression from a complex combination of causes including biological differences, brain chemistry, hormones, or inherited traits. Depression can also be a result of a recent life event, disease diagnosis, or a major change.

Behavioral health studies estimate that 80 percent of people with depression feel better when seeking treatment. People who have chemical imbalances that cause depression often feel better with the right combination of treatments and therapy. It can take time to find the right options. These patients must often continue treatment for years or even throughout their lives. However, effective solutions allow the symptoms of depression to go away in time.

There are many different options in the market today, including but not limited to:

• SSRIs (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors)
• SNRIs (serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors)
•Atypical Depression Medication

Total Behavioral Health will discuss the benefits and risks of each option, and can help recommend a treatment plan based on your unique needs.
