Depression is often experienced as crushing and enduring sadness, feelings of emptiness, hopelessness, loss of motivation, and an inability to find pleasure in life. It often has profound effects not just on how you feel but also on how you go about your daily life, often negatively impacting work or school performance, as well as your ability to hold on to close relationships with others. It can be particularly difficult to overcome on your own as it usually saps all one’s energy and ability to stay active and make the changes in life that often help improve how you feel. When everything seems bleak and overwhelming, what’s the point in trying?
Therapy has been shown to be effective at treating depression and helping improve peoples’ mood and functioning.
