Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dennis White offers hope to those suffering in the throngs of depression. Dr. White says that depression is a serious illness with many physical, behavioral, and emotional features that affect millions of Americans. He notes that the good news is that it can be treated successfully with psychotherapy, self-help, and medication. One of the leading methods in dealing with depression is cognitive therapy.
In milder cases of depression, Dr. White says self-help can be sufficient by itself. Harvard Health Publishing notes depression can impact your attention, memory, decision-making, and information processing.
