Depression is an increasingly common condition that causes individuals to feel hopeless, helpless and worthless for extended periods. This empty feeling negatively affects the individual’s personal and vocational life and can trigger a cascade of negative thought patterns. However, depression is a very treatable condition with therapeutic intervention and possible medication application.
It is important for individuals and families to know that they or their loved one does not have to continue to suffer as a result of this debilitating condition. Depression counselors work with individuals to help them return to their baseline level of functioning.
