We all feel sad from time to time. But clinical depression and postpartum depression are far more than just feeling sad. Depression takes over your daily life and makes it difficult to face work, school, family and friends. It may even get in the way of your ability to eat, sleep, and take care of yourself.
When these feelings won't go away, it's time to find help from a mental health professional. Linden Oaks can help.
A main part of treatment is to help you learn coping skills and techniques to understand your triggers for depression and why you feel this way. Expressive therapies encourage wellness through increased self-awareness, and through individual and group sessions, you have the opportunity to talk about your feelings and work through the source of your depression. If inpatient treatment is recommended, our multidisciplinary team of registered nurses, behavioral health associates, and a psychiatrist will work closely together to find the most effective treatment for you.
