According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder which affects how you feel, think, and handle daily activities such as sleeping, eating, or working. Untreated depression symptoms can last for weeks, months, or years and can lead to significant impairment, other health-related issues, and in some cases, suicide.
If you have been experiencing the following symptoms nearly every day for at least two weeks, you may be suffering from depression:
If you've been treated for depression but your symptoms haven't improved, you may have Treatment Resistant Depression. With Treatment Resistant Depression, standard treatments often aren't enough. They may not help much at all, or your symptoms may improve, only to keep coming back.
Depression can in fact be treated, usually with medications and/or psychotherapy. However, researchers are looking for ways to better understand, diagnose and treat depression. They are also studying strategies to personalize care for depression, such as identifying characteristics that predict which treatments will be most effective.
