Everyone feels sad sometimes, but these feelings usually pass after a few days. When you have depression, you have trouble with daily life for weeks at a time. Depression is a serious illness that needs treatment. At times, the signs are obvious: perhaps you or your loved one has been sapped of energy, unable to maintain focus and interest, plagued by an overwhelming sense of sadness and an underwhelming appetite. These are but a few of the telltale signs of Depression (Major Depressive Disorder or Clinical Depression). At Resilience, we understand how taxing depression can be. Our West Los Angeles, CA based program is designed to confront your depression head-on and build emotional resilience in the process.
What is Depression?
Depression can mean a lot of different things to different people. The first step to beginning any effective treatment plan is getting to know the face of your illness. Nearly 20 million Americans struggle with Depression in a given year. On a clinical level, Depression is defined as the persistence of five of seven symptoms over a two week period to such an extent that it harms one’s relationships and ability to work or engage in social activities, according to the Mayo Clinic. To the layperson, this means that every day activities and responsibilities can be especially cumbersome as you or your loved one struggles under the strain of their mental health. At Resilience Treatment Center’s Los Angeles, CA facility, we know that effectively managing depression requires some assistance. Our experienced and multidisciplinary team of clinicians understands that treating depression begins by addressing its root causes in a comprehensive and holistic manner.
