SIGNS/SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION

 THE FOLLOWING ARE SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION
  1. persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood
  2. feelings of hopelessness and pessimism
  3. feelings of worthlessness, helplessness, and self-hatred
  4. feeling guilty
  5. decreased energy
  6. difficulty concentrating and making decisions
  7. insomnia, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping
  8. loss in appetite and weight loss, or overeating and weight gain
  9. physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment, such as headaches, back/neck aches, digestive disorders or chronic pain
  10. suicidal thoughts
  11. increased anxiety or panic 

If any of these symptoms have been becoming increasingly severe, immediate help should be sought 

     If you or your loved one are thinking or talking a lot about death, or feeling at all suicidal you should call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.  Though millions of Americans will suffer from depression, only 1 out of 10 will seek help.  The other 9 simply suffer needlessly often times because they are too depressed to even make the call.  You do not want this to get worse, so the sooner help is sought, the sooner the relief, and the less severe the symptoms.  This self test is not a formal depression diagnosis assessment, but designed to help you recognize the number of symptoms of depression you or your loved one may be experiencing.  You have nothing to lose by seeking help.

If there is a sense of urgency and you  feel it cannot wait for an appointment, please call 911, or go to your nearest emergency room
