You are not alone
Introduction to Depression
There are several different types of depression; however, they all share certain symptoms. Symptoms of depression include overwhelming sadness, emptiness, and mood alterations that inhibit your ability to be a part of day-to-day obligations or activities you once enjoyed. Without the help of a depression treatment center, depression symptoms can persist to the point where they take over and have lasting impacts on your physical and psychological health. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) lists criteria for multiple depressive disorders, including persistent depressive disorder, seasonal affective disorder, psychotic depression, bipolar disorder, and postpartum depression.
