Are you suffering from fatigue, sleep problems, general irritability, inability to concentrate, anxiety, excessive alcohol or drug intake, suicidal thoughts, trouble making decisions, or general stress? You may be experiencing symptoms of depression and you are not alone. The estimated number of U.S. adults who had at least one major depressive episode 2012 is 16,000,000. Worldwide it jumps to 350,000,000!
The good news is that 50% of American’s with major depression are now seeking treatment.
There has never been a time in our country’s history where accessibility to effective treatments has been so great! While medication can be a part of an overall treatment plan, medication alone should never be the entire treatment plan. Medication cannot think for you. Learning and healing through effective therapeutic treatments is the best way to not only overcome the depression you are currently experiencing, but it can “inoculate” you so that you experience less intensity and duration from any future depressive episodes.
There are multiple types of effective, evidenced based therapies that can help you work through the depressive symptoms you are experiencing. Cognitive Behavioral therapy aims to change thoughts and behaviors that contribute to depression. Interpersonal therapy identifies how your relationships impact your mood. Psychodynamic therapy helps people understand how their behavior and mood are affected by unresolved issues and unconscious feelings. Clinical hypnotherapy and EMDR are also evidenced based and effective treatments for depression that should be considered as part of a comprehensive approach to treating and healing depression.
