Help for depression and anxiety
According to the National Institute for Mental Health, an estimated 16.2 million adults in the United States had at least one major depressive episode in 2017. When a person is experiencing symptoms of depression, they have trouble with their mood or withdraw from most activities which they used to enjoy. Other symptoms can include sleep disturbance, changes in appetite, feelings of worthlessness or extreme guilt, difficulty concentrating or making decisions, low energy, decrease in productivity, or suicidal ideation. According to the Center for Disease Control in 2018, Suicide has been the 10th leading causes of death in the United States. One of the protective factors for prevention of suicide is to get appropriate clinical care.
There are many different treatments to help alleviate symptoms of depression which you can discuss with your therapist, such as Behavioral Activation Treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy or Interpersonal Social Rhythm Therapy. As always, if you are in an emergency situation, please get care in an emergency room before coming for treatment.
Children, adolescents, and adults can develop anxiety disorders. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, “Research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences and engage in substance abuse.” Some of the most successful treatments for Anxiety include Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
