Diagnosing DepressionLGBTNationwideSupportA Guide by Insurancewithyou.com.
Many people use the words depressed and depression in everyday life, without understanding the full extent of what it really means to have a mental disorder, such as anxiety or depression. A lot of people will have ups and downs in their everyday mood, but depression strikes for weeks and even months on end. It’s a health condition that can’t be cured by ‘snapping out of it’. However, with the right diagnosis and treatment, most people with depression can make a full recovery.
