Depression is a medical illness which affects 19 million Americans or 9.5% of the population. It’s common symptoms include sad/depressed mood or loss of pleasure in most activities for at least 2 weeks.
Depression is a predictable response to certain types of life occurrences, such as loss of status, divorce, or death of a child or spouse, but in patients with genetic predispositions for depression these symptoms are persistent for at least 2 weeks at a time. Major depression is a disabling condition that adversely affects a person’s family, work or school life, sleeping and eating habits, and general health.
