The Archives of General Psychiatry reports that more than 14.8 million American adults suffer from a major depressive disorder throughout any given year. Due to negative economic conditions, Selman anticipates this number is currently significantly above the national average.
Selman emphasizes that is important for people to monitor their families and friends during this economic crisis to determine if any loved ones exhibit signs of depression. Common signs of depression to look for include:
• Even after a full night of rest, feeling emotionally and physically drained
• Unable to sleep, or sleeping excessive amounts
• Unusual avoidance of contact and communication with others
• Belief that life is pointless
• Thoughts of harming yourself or other people
Although depression can be a terrifying and painful experience, those people suffering can successfully overcome their condition through constructive depression counseling and depression therapy sessions. In some cases, medication is needed to temporarily relieve serious symptoms.
"Through depression therapy sessions, I work closely with my clients, helping them make positive daily changes, which often alleviates the depression and brings joy back into their life," concludes Selman.
