Facts About Depression
Depression is a real disorder. While all people experience sadness in their lifetime, depression is not the same. It can be crippling in social situations as well as in completing tasks of daily living. In general depression is a result of a chemical imbalance in the brain that simply does not give you access to enough of serotonin, the “happy” hormone. We can help you by finding activities that increase endorphins as a replacement. We can also use medication to bring up the deficit.
