To stay healthy, you must fully understand your current health status as well as your risk of developing diseases in the future.
It is normal to feel "down in the dumps" on occasion, but people with major depression feel significantly sad for a prolonged period of time and have difficulty enjoying acts once found pleasurable.
Depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of loss, anger, sadness, or frustration interfere with your everyday life. Depression can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe. It can occur one time or several times or it can be ongoing (lasting more than 2 years).
As many as 17 million Americans are affected by this mood disorder each year. Take our depressionaware assessment to see if you may be at risk for depression.
After taking this assessment, you may talk to a counselor by calling our Help Line 24/7 at (630) 305-5500.
