Depression and other mood disorders are mental health conditions that affect a person’s emotional state, thoughts, behaviour, and physical health. Untreated mood disorders can have a devastating impact on overall functioning, relationships and quality of life.
Major Depressive Disorder, for example, is a mood disorder characterized by persistent sadness, feelings of hopelessness, poor concentration and energy and a disinterest in activities one used to enjoy. People suffering from severe depression are also at increased risk of death by suicide. Examples of other mood disorders include Persistent Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder.
If left untreated, depression and other mood disorders can significantly impact your quality of life and overall functioning. However, with the proper treatment and support, you can achieve long-term recovery and lead a happy, fulfilling life.
Highly structured curriculums include individual and group therapy, medication management, coping skills and relapse prevention education.
