Have you ever just felt like you’ve had enough? Ever felt like the weight of the world was on your shoulders and that there was no way out? Then you may have suffered from depression.

Depression Therapy 2A lot more people suffer from depression than you might think. But how do you know if you’re one of them?

Depression is a disorder that causes people to feel sad and lose interest in the things that once gave them pleasure. It can affect any part of a person’s day from not being able to get enough sleep at night to a lack of concentration in the workplace.

With one in six people experiencing depression at some point in their lifetime, it’s clear that treatment for the disorder is vital. Unfortunately, it’s not just something that a person can decide to forget about. They need professional help.

ChapCare, a local community health center network with 4 locations in the Pasadena area, is hoping to be able to provide that help for those who are struggling right now and don’t know where else to turn. Screening people for depression, it is able to get those in need of help before the condition worsens.

ChapCare provides easy access to behavioral health specialists who can discuss how you’re feeling and initiate a treatment plan. This could involve anything from exploring medication options to simply getting involved in talk therapy – either as an individual or as part of a support group.

It can be scary to take that first step and make that call. But if you want those all-encompassing feelings of loss and sorrow to be replaced with positive ones, you need to speak to someone who understands. Someone who won’t judge you and who can help steer you on the path to recovery.
