One out of every ten Americans struggles with depression symptoms. While this is a common ailment, there are many causes for depression such as a crisis or painful event, a major life transition, a biological predisposition, trauma or a significant loss. In our culture today, we lead very stressful lives and it’s difficult to find the time to enjoy life, find meaning and cultivate relationships with people who care for us. Instead, we may find ourselves under constant pressure to perform, to be perfect or fulfill unspoken expectations. We may often lose ourselves and feel lost, alone and disconnected from our own life experiences. The good news is that depression treatment can help you find a way to reconnect with yourself and experience the joy in life once again.
