What is Depression?

Clinical depression is a common, yet serious, illness that affects more than 19 million Americans each year. Unfortunately, only one-third of sufferers seeks treatment, even though the illness can be effectively treated in 80 percent of all cases. Although depression is a real medical illness, many people still mistakenly believe it is a personal weakness.

The symptoms of depression can include:

A persistent sad feeling

Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed

Sleeping too little or too much (especially with early-morning waking)

Reduced appetite and weight loss, or increased appetite and weight gain

Restlessness or irritability

Persistent physical symptoms that don't respond to treatment

Difficulty concentrating, remembering or making decisions

Fatigue or loss of energy

Feelings of guilt, hopelessness or worthlessness

Thoughts of death or suicide

If you have five or more of these symptoms for more than two weeks, you may be suffering from depression and should seek further evaluation.

You can test yourself with this simple and anonymous screening, or call your doctor.
