Many people have experienced at least one type of depression during their lifetime. Depression is considered the number one mental health disorder in the United States and last year about 16 million Americans had a substantial depressive incident. Therapists say that if sad feelings and loss of motivation to participate in your daily life activities last for more than two weeks, then these are signals that you may be depressed. If you feel down and out, contact the therapists at Counseling Works in Plainfield for Depression Counseling.

What Are the Symptoms of Depression?

Every now and again all of us feel blue, but if this type of feeling and outlook intensifies and lasts for a period, you most likely are suffering from depression. At Counseling Works our depression therapists will guide you through depression counseling sessions where you will learn to use proven coping skills that will help you manage future depressive symptoms.

During Depression Counseling you will learn what thoughts and activities make you start feeling depressed. Depression comes in many forms; however, the following are general symptoms that are found during Depression Counseling with your Plainfield counselor. These symptoms include:
