Are you searching for depression counseling near me?
There is no stigma attached to searching for counseling these days. Depression is extremely common in our modern day society. So even if you have mild depression or more major depression, you should not hesitate to get the help you need.
Sometimes depression can be triggered by an event like losing your job. But sometimes it can occur for no real reason even when your life appears to be going well.
Depression is complex and even though research seems to indicate there could be biological factors to it, such as having a smaller hippocampus or producing excess of the stress hormone cortisol, it is not clear. Further research is required.
Psychotherapy (talk therapy) can help with depression. We also have psychiatric nurse practitioners who can prescribe medications for it if you need them.

Clinical depression is often confused with ordinary feelings of sadness or "the blues". The distinction often lies in the severity, length of the symptoms, and the extent to which it interferes with your daily functioning. Depression impacts how you think, feel and act, often leading to difficulty engaging in day-to-day activities.
