What is Depression?

Depression is a common and serious mental illness that affects the lives of millions of people worldwide. It can cause an array of problems, both physical and mental, and dramatically impact many aspects of a person's life

Clinical depression is different from the emotions that arise from grief, bereavement, or even the occasional feeling of being down. Depression causes patients to experience chronic symptoms that include, but are not limited to:

  • Feelings of sadness
  • Loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities
  • Changes in appetite
  • Feelings of guilt and worthlessness
  • Fatigue or insomnia
  • Thoughts of death and suicide

Fortunately, depression is very treatable with medication and therapy, and patients generally respond well given the appropriate treatment protocol.

Treatment for Depression

Depression can often be successfully treated with medication, therapy, or a combination of the two.  Contact Psychiatry Associates of Baton Rouge to request an appointment and learn more about these conditions and available treatment options.
