Depression Q&A

What is depression?

Depression is the most common of all mental illnesses and can appear at any age. You may be diagnosed with depression if your symptoms last for at least two weeks and have a notable impact on your well-being and ability to function. 

 

Some assume that depression is just a period of sadness and that your mood bounces back eventually. However, this is not the case. Depression is severe enough to affect your energy, focus, and interest in activities you normally enjoy.

 

When you visit MindMD Wellness with concerns about depression, the team provides a detailed mental health assessment. A full psychiatric evaluation identifies depression and any other mental health disorders affecting you. 

How can I tell if I have depression?

You should take stock of your feelings from day to day. Even if you’re not the first to notice a change in your temperament, someone close to you might ask about changes in your habits and demeanor. 

 

Some of the most common signs and symptoms of depression are:

 

  • Sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Guilt
  • Loss of interest in your typical favorite things
  • Low energy or fatigue
  • Sleep changes
  • Appetite changes
  • Thoughts of death or suicide 
  • Aches and pains

 

Booking an appointment at MindMD Wellness is the first step in getting the personalized help you need to minimize your symptoms. 

How can I manage my depression?

MindMD Wellness provides multiple evidence-based options for depression, including treatment-resistant depression. The team might suggest:

Counseling or psychotherapy

Through counseling or psychotherapy, you can develop coping skills to deal with your depression symptoms and the changes that happen in your life because of them. The team might recommend simple changes you can make to your routine to improve your mood and sleep. 

Antidepressants

Antidepressants are medications that alter your brain chemicals to help alleviate symptoms of depression.

Ketamine infusions

Ketamine infusions are a novel treatment for treatment-resistant depression. Ketamine was once only a pain medication but is now used for mental health in some cases too.
