People with depression tend to feel sad, fatigued, and hopeless for long periods. Some people may have difficulty feeling happiness, even when they are experiencing a joyful event. In severe cases, depression can increase a person’s risk of suicide.

According to Mental Health America, depression is one of the most common mental health issues in the nation. It affects more than 16 million adults each year. Although depression is a common human experience, only about a third of those who experience it will seek treatment from a mental health professional.

Depression comes in many forms, including seasonal affective disorder and postpartum depression. Although some types of depression are more persistent than others, all types are treatable. A licensed therapist in Rockford can help you understand and manage symptoms of depression.
