Depression Treatment

Depression Treatment

Depression is a serious medical condition. In contrast to the normal emotional experiences of sadness, loss, or passing mood states, clinical depression is persistent and can interfere significantly with a person’s ability to function.

Treatment for Depression

Pine Grove Outpatient Services is now providing an outpatient therapy group for the treatment of Depressive Disorders. Depressive Disorders are more common than most people think. Depression is estimated to affect about one in six individuals each year. Depression is a treatable illness, but unfortunately it is under diagnosed and under treated.

Symptoms of Depression

The common symptoms for depression are listed below:

  • Little interest or pleasure in doing things
  • Feeling down, depressed, or hopeless
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep, or sleeping too much
  • Feeling tired or having little energy
  • Poor appetite or overeating
  • Feeling you are a failure or have let yourself or others down
  • Trouble concentrating on simple tasks
  • Moving or speaking so slowly that others notice
  • Being restless or moving around a lot more than usual
  • Thoughts of suicide or of hurting yourself

*   Knowing that the group members truly understand the experience of depression
*   Learning how others have coped with depression
