Houston Depression Treatment
Depression may be biological or situational. If you have any relatives that suffer from a mood disorder such as Depression or Bipolar Disorder, you have a greater chance of developing depression. It often helps to talk with someone who can help you understand the reason for your symptoms of depression such as past abuse, poor coping skills, lack of social support, trouble with employment, the end of a relationship, or other life stressors.
Life is full of normal ups and downs. But if you have been feeling sad almost every day, most of the day for longer than 2 weeks and you are having difficulty with your normal life functioning, you may have symptoms of depression.
