Mood Disorders

A recent article in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) indicated that depression is one of the most prevalent of all medical illnesses.  One in 5 adults experience depression at least once in a lifetime, fewer than half seek treatment.  Most people who die of suicide had an untreated depression.  Twice as many women as men experience depression, both are equally at risk for manic-depression.

For most people with depression, brief psychotherapy and/or medication is the most effective approach to effective treatment.  Community Concern has skilled clinicians and a board certified psychiatrist to correctly diagnose and treat depression
