Depression results in over 66% of the reported suicides each year.  While depression affects women roughly twice the rate as men, there is no demographic that doesn’t suffer from this condition. Roughly 1 in 10 Americans indicate to their Doctor that they may have Depression since Depression can result from traumatic experiences or have unknown origins. Depression is the number 1 source of disability globally, and patients with untreated depression are at a 50% greater risk of developing other serious conditions such as Coronary Artery Disease. The latest research shows a direct correlation between finding treatment and improving depression symptoms, yet 35% of patients never receive help.  80% of patients undergoing treatment show improvement in 1 to 2 months.  Don’t wait.  Start the clock now!
