Understanding the impact of depression -- Mental Health Minute series

Depression and the factors that go into its debilitating effects are very complicated but treatable says a Sturgeon Bay Psychologist.  Dr. Dennis White notes that a complicated disorder like depression can have many different causes.  It can be influenced by our families and how we think.  Depression affects millions of people in the United States and can be severely debilitating in some instances.   Dr. White says depression is more than just sadness or the blues.

 

 

Many symptoms for depression include feelings of hopelessness, tiredness, and worthlessness.  Dr. White adds that low self-esteem and no interest in any activities along with suicidal thoughts are other signs of depression.  You can listen to Dr. White’s entire Mental Health Minute with this story below.
