Depression affects millions of people and is characterized by a sad and disconnected mood. The individual suffering from depression may not respond to external attempts at being cheered and may continue to progress towards suicidal thoughts. Depression can range in its extremes from mild to severe as in the case of chronic depression. However no matter how intense the condition is, depression can be treated in a number of different ways. At Grief Recovery Center, we offer depression counseling Houston patients can benefit from.
Signs and symptoms of depression include:
- Feelings of overwhelming sadness
- Feelings of worthlessness and unworthiness
- Sleep changes such as insomnia or oversleeping
- Difficulty concentrating
- Not enjoying former hobbies and pastimes
Although depression is a common illness affecting 1 out of 10 individuals, it shouldn't be discounted for its seriousness. Individuals affected by depression are encouraged to seek help from a licensed therapist. There is no need to feel shame or fear about seeking help and with a depression therapist, Houston patients are likely to recover much more quickly than they would on their own.
There are many therapeutic modalities that have proven effective at treating depression. A licensed therapist can offer a wide variety of solutions through individual counseling as well as group therapy. Make an appointment today and begin the road to healing and recovery.
