Words of Depression
October 6th, 2022
October 6 is National Depression Screening Day. Depression can affect your mind, body and soul. It can also alter your thoughts, moods and actions. Depression can affect your job, interest, well being, perception on life and even affect those around you. We may have temporary feelings of sadness and depression, but these feelings should not be “tolerated” forever. Depression may make you feel helpless but there are ways to help, just know you are not alone in this battle. The first step to treating depression is knowing if you are depressed.
