Know the Signs

Sometimes it's more than just the blues. When you start losing interest in things you once loved to do, are constantly overwhelmed, anxious, unable to sleep, feeling hopeless or contemplating self-destructive outlets, it's time to seek professional help. There are several ways to treat depression, including therapy and medication. Talk with your doctor to see what treatment will be best for you.

And don't worry if you don't get on the right course right off the bat. Sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error or a combination of different options to find your match. The important thing to remember is that there is a solution and you don't have to find it on your own.
