According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 1 in 10 Americans suffer from clinical depression. Unlike sadness, depression is characterized as a sense of hopelessness, hollowness, fatigue, lack of motivation, helplessness, lack of pleasure, and an overwhelming heaviness that makes daily life very difficult:

  • Those who suffer from depression experience a degree of emotional anguish that can make functioning extremely challenging.
  • Despite the high percentage of people affected by depression, a sense of isolation or being alone often accompanies it.
  • People who are depressed often withdraw from their loved ones. This often compounds their experience, as social support is important for any person’s wellbeing - particularly those who are struggling with depression.

Depression is common, but often debilitating to the person experiencing it. Those who are depressed may feel empty, hopeless, drained, and without joy. If you or someone you love is suffering from depression, there is hope. Contact us at (516) 221-9494 today for more information.
