Signs and Symptoms of Depression

Depression, a mental illness known to cause extreme emotional pain, affects people of all ages. Often preventing individuals from leading happy, healthy lives, depression can impair a person's ability to enjoy life's simple pleasures due to the feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, worthlessness, and intense sadness that come with the disorder. Depression can also infringe on a person's ability to remember things, think clearly, concentrate, or make good choices. Aside from the warfare that depression can wage on a person's psyche, a number of physiological symptoms can occur if the disorder goes untreated. Decreased appetite, rapid weight gain or loss in a short period of time, insomnia or hypersomnia, and pain are often reported by sufferers of depression. When these symptoms combine with the psychological symptoms associated with depression, people may notice the individual losing interest in things once enjoyed, have difficulty fulfilling roles, missing school or work, or isolating him or herself from friends and loved ones. Those that suffer from depression are also at an increased risk of developing suicidal ideations or even attempting suicide highlighting the importance of seeking help immediately.

Treatment Options

Valley Behavioral Health provides effective treatment and can assist in turning a depressed person's life around. Offering acute and sub-acute inpatient services for children and adolescents plus inpatient, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization for adults, Valley Behavioral is more than equipped to help individuals with depression achieve recovery. Within the programs offered at Valley Behavioral, patients can expect to partake in individual, group, and family therapy as part of the therapeutic process.

Lastly, Valley Behavioral incorporates experiential therapies, such as relaxation techniques, recreational therapy, music therapy and medication management services (supervised by medical professionals) to ensure that all treatment needs are met.
