Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Everyone experiences sadness or loss at some time during their life. Though painful, these feelings often subside with time and may not interfere with daily life. Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a common, yet serious medical illness that affects 15 million American adults yearly. Major depression interferes with a person’s daily life–their ability to eat, sleep, work, and enjoy things that were once pleasurable. It disrupts normal functioning, causing pain for both people who suffer with symptoms, and for those that care about them. Most people with MDD need treatment to get better.

Symptoms of Depression Include:

  • Loss of Interest in Things Once Pleasurable
  • Sadness
  • Fatigue/Decreased Energy
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Hopelessness
  • Weight Loss or Gain
  • Trouble Concentrating
  • Irritability
