Depression

Treatment for Depression

Each year, an estimated 16 million American adults experience at least one major depressive episode. Depression is more than just a feeling of sadness; it is a severe but treatable form of mental illness that interferes with daily life. It is often characterized by feelings of hopelessness, loss of energy, changes in appetite and sleep, and a lack of concentration among other things.

Mind Springs Health offers several effective treatment methods and resources for coping and thriving with mild to severe Depression, including: Counseling & Therapy for Depression, Hospitalization for Depression and Ongoing Resources to Manage Depression.
