If you or someone you know is experiencing depression, stress
or anxiety, Behavioral Health Services can help.
Depression affects millions of Americans of all ages. Many of those
suffering from depression are not aware that treatment is available to
improve their quality of life. People with depression often experience feelings of irritability, hopelessness and thoughts about death or suicide. Fortunately, depression can be effectively treated with
professional therapy and in some cases medication as well.
for major depression may include outpatient behavioral health care with a
professional therapist to determine the causes of depression and
treatment options. In some cases, an antidepressant medication may be
needed as well. If depression is severe, inpatient care may be required.
Free Walk-in Screenings
Our free walk-in
depression screenings give people the opportunity to take a questionnaire to assess their risk for mood and anxiety disorders and
obtain information about treatment.
SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
Symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) usually begin in late fall
and subside in the spring, when daylight hours increase. January and
February seem to be the most difficult for SAD sufferers. In addition, therapy for SAD may involve
giving people more of what their bodies need: sunlight. Because few of
us have the luxury of escaping to a sunny locale when SAD strikes,
artificial light sources may help. Phototherapy or bright light therapy
uses a special light box that may help symptoms subside. In some cases,
an antidepressant may also be used as part of SAD treatment.
