Needing a break from your own thoughts and feelings?
Feeling sad all the time?
Have you experienced loss of interest or pleasure in activities you used to enjoy?
Are you feeling worthless, guilty or having suicidal thoughts?
Depression is not a temporary feeling of sadness, it is a persistent state of mind that takes control of your body and mind for weeks, months or even years. Individuals that suffer from this condition describe their feelings as intense and overwhelming as depression weakens mental health.
Don’t Lose Hope, There is a Way Out of Depression
We understand how depression feels like, know that you are not alone in this path, and although the way out may seem difficult, there is light at the end of the tunnel. There are many more people who have been through the same situation, and have found the way to move forward and leave depression aside from their lives.
In fact, it's estimated that approximately 11% of Canadians will experience depression in their lifetime. It's not just about sadness, it's about feeling isolated, fatigued, and losing interest in things that once brought joy. We understand that depression can be a heavy burden to carry, but making the decision of going to therapy will lead you to a journey towards healing and recovery.
