What is Depression?

Depression is the leading cause of disability and impacts over 350 million people worldwide.  Trauma, significant life changes, and loss are often associated with depression.  We also know that depression has a strong biological component and family disposition.  Depression can be found in people who have anxiety and chemical addictions.  Untreated depression is the leading cause of suicide and other serious physical illnesses such as heart disease.  Recognizing the symptoms of depression is the first step toward treatment.

Questions to Ask

  • Do you have little interest in engaging in activities or relationships?
  • Are the things that once brought joy or pleasure now difficulty to begin?
  • Has sleep become an issue?  Sleeping too much, or not falling or staying asleep?
  • Are you eating less or more because your appetite has changed?
  • Have you noticed an increase in feeling hopeless, helpless or worthless?
  • Do you have thoughts of death or suicide?
  • Can you focus on things that require your attention? Is concentrating becoming difficult?
  • Are you feeling like or beginning to  believe that you are a failure?

If you are feeling suicidal please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or visit their website for an online chat.

Depression Services

Our providers are highly collaborative and work with each individual client and their treatment team (if needed) to asses, create and implement an individualized plan toward recovery and health.  This may involve varying levels of care from individual therapy, to intensive outpatient programs, to a combination of services designed to best address the needs of the client. 

Intensive Outpatient Programs

Separate programs for Adults (18+) & Adolescents (12-18)

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are a group-based, more intensive form of treatment for those experiencing moderate to severe mental health symptoms.  An IOP level of care is designed to meet the needs of individuals who need more support than weekly therapy sessions provide, but are not in need of inpatient care.  Participants will receive psychoeducation and skills teaching including; mindfulness, crisis management, cognitive challenging, regulation strategies, boundaries, communication and emotional expression/containment.  In addition members will have process/emotional group therapy, gain education on nutrition and mood, explore the role of spirituality related to healing and integrate movement therapies for mind/body connection.
