Depression Help

Depression Help – Get Counseling in the Early Stages

Depression help should be sought at the first sign of depressive symptoms, to avoid being overcome by the condition’s persistent and negative effects.

If you have depression, you are less productive at work, suffer more illness, and experience higher rates of alcohol and drug abuse than the general population. But there’s no need to endure decades of depression.

By undergoing depression counseling through Calabasas Behavioral Health early on, you can begin to learn how to manage the condition and live a well-adjusted, happy life.

Many patients assume initial symptoms of depression are a phase that will quickly end. The disorder often starts when you go through an emotional trauma, such as the death of a loved one or a career setback.

Even when depression persists, you rationalize that the problem will eventually go away and your normal life will resume. You might be embarrassed to reveal your unrelenting sadness to others, including mental health professionals.

Calabasas Behavioral Health therapists are empathetic and knowledgeable. They tailor treatments to each patient. In some cases, psychotherapy is effective in treating moderate depression.  For other patients, medication, along with talk therapy, is required. Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a third option in treatment of depression.

How to Tell If You Need Depression Help

If you have felt blue for several weeks, it’s time to take inventory to determine if you need professional depression help. Symptoms of the condition include:

  • Difficulty sleeping, night after night.
  • Trouble concentrating on a task, either at home or at work.
  • Reduced appetite.
  • Loss of interest in activities that you formerly enjoyed.
  • A lack of energy. Do you spend evening after evening at home, unable to force yourself to go out?
  • A general feeling of low spirits or sadness that seems to persist no matter where you are or what you are doing.

Even mild cases of depression can worsen, so call 818-921-4300 today to get depression help from a Calabasas Behavioral Health professional.
