Depression is one of the most common, and devastating mental illnesses. It debilitates in a very simple and nightmarish fashion – by draining you of the will to do anything. It affects over 16 million Americans every year. However, it is treatable and manageable.
Let’s just clarify one thing: clinical depression may seem similar to normal behavior, but actually go much deeper, are characterized by physical differences in a person’s brain chemistry. Sure, we all get a little sad sometimes, but there’s a clear difference between a feeling and a clinical disorder. There is no magic pill, no secret treatment and no perfect therapy. However, our goal and mission aren’t to cure your depression. It’s to teach you how to live with the disorder – and how to live with yourself.
