Depression is a serious medical illness that is affecting millions of people. Along with the emotional experience of sadness, loss, or passing mood states clinical depression is consistent and can interfere with a personís ability to function.

The impact of depression that can occur in any individual can be enormous in suffering. Some symptoms of depression which occurs in nearly 10 million adults each year are:

  • A sad or empty mood
  • Memory troubles
  • Lack of interest in routine activities
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Changes in sleep or appetite (increase or decrease)
  • Easily irritated by minor things
  • Frequent crying
  • Feeling of guilt or worthlessness


    Depression can be devastating to all areas of a personís everyday life including family relationships, friends, and ability to work or go to school. Many people believe that the symptoms of depression are not "real" and that it could be shaken off by the individual if they just tried.

    Because of the inaccurate beliefs that depression causes, people either may not recognize that they have a treatable disorder or may be discouraged from seeking help or staying on any treatment due to feelings of shame and guilt. Too often untreated depression leads to suicide.
