Have you been feeling empty, isolated, and hopeless? Have you been feeling numb and can't seem to find joy in anything, even the things you generally love? Are you experiencing physical symptoms like aches and pains, sleeping more, and appetite changes? Perhaps loved ones have mentioned these changes to you.

If so, you may be one of the estimated 280 million people in the world who struggle with depression (Source as of 2021).

Just because depression is "common" doesn't mean it's not serious and worthy of treatment. At Meridian Counseling, we have devoted our studies and our professional lives to figuring out ways to help people overcome feelings of desperation or discouragement–whatever their source–because we are dedicated to helping people live a full, joyful life. And with a variety of therapeutic techniques, we are confident that we can do just that.


Symptoms of Mild or Major Depression Disorder (MDD)

The more formal terms in the field of psychology for the most common types of depression are 'clinical depression' and 'major depressive disorder' (a.k.a. 'mdd'). As mentioned above and including additional elements, signs and symptoms of clinical depression or major depressive disorder include feeling:
  • Sad (beyond the norm)
  • Empty
  • Numb
  • Hopeless
  • Irritable or moody
  • Tired all the time, even after sleeping
  • Feeling grief without a specific cause
  • Overwhelmed
  • Low self-esteem or not like yourself
  • Anxious "for no reason"
  • Angry
  • Unmotivated at work or at home
  • Sudden loss of interest in hobbies or other enjoyable activities

Or having:
  • Relationship issues, even within established relationships 
  • A desire to withdraw from life
  • A desire for self-isolation
  • Thoughts of death
  • Thoughts of suicide (Please call 911 immediately if you are in danger of harming yourself or those around you. There's help.)

Also remember that depression doesn't look the same in everyone. Signs of depression in children, teens, adults, and senior citizens may each manifest differently because of age and stage of development.

Regardless of how long your personal list of struggles is, whether you're experiencing severe depression symptoms–including postpartum depression (PPD) symptoms–or more of a sense of low mood that's making the rest of your life harder, seeing a depression counselor or therapist can help.

Additionally, the professional therapists and counselors at Meridian Counseling aren't limited to only treating depression, so they can help with anger management issues, anxiety, and trauma processing that can often be tied to the roots of a person's depression.
