FAQ » Mood Disorders » Depression


Depression is more than just feeling sad or down. It is a common – but serious – medical condition characterized by negative feelings that interfere with everyday living. These feelings impact the ability to function in a normal environment. Specific forms of depression occur under specific circumstances, such as postpartum depression or seasonal affective disorder, but many people experience depression that isn’t connected to particular events or surroundings.

Depression is a treatable illness that alters the way in which a person thinks, feels, behaves, and functions. If left untreated, depression will seriously impact, if not ruin, an individual’s quality of life.

Women who suffer from depression often turn to drugs and alcohol to cope with their feelings of hopelessness, sadness, and apathy. Depression may not manifest in the same way every day, but it hurts nonetheless.
