Our Approach to Depression
Depression is one of the most common mental
disorders in the United States and can significantly
impact a person’s daily life and activities. In 2016,
almost 11% of young adults ages 18-25 had
experienced depression as well as 7% of adults
ages 26-49. For all adults over 18, it is estimated
that over 10.3 million adults had experienced major
depression that significantly impaired their lives.
For adolescents ages 12-17, around 2.2 million or
9% of the population ages 12-17 have experienced depression that has significantly impacted their daily lives. Of these adolescents, 60% did not received any treatment for their depression.
When you work with one of our specialists, you work together in identifying areas in your life that are contributing to depression and begin to take steps to overcoming its pull. Thoughts, behaviors, biological issues, nutrition, and relationships all have to be explored in order to reverse depression. Having a professional counselor who can act as an objective party that is there to support and guide you can be pivotal in changing the tides of depression.
