DEPRESSION

Depression occurs when certain neurotransmitters in our brains fire, or attach, differently than they typically would. This causes us to feel low and experience a variety of physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. Depression is as unique as each person that experiences it.  

Depression is a common, but serious mood disorder that can affect the way a person feels, thinks, and handles daily life. Risk factors of depression include personal or family history of depression, major life changes, trauma, or stress, as well as certain physical illnesses and medications. Depression is a medical illness that is treatable with the right help. If you are suffering from depression, you may experience a wide range of symptoms.
