Major Depression

Major depression is a significant emotional disorder that can severely impact a person’s social, family, and work life. Individuals may experience just one episode or multiple episodes throughout their lives. The causes of major depression can be genetic and physiological or situational, stemming from life stresses. Major depressive disorder symptoms typically include persistent sadness, lack of motivation, and feelings of hopelessness, which are key targets of major depressive disorder treatments.

Dysthymia (Persistent Depressive Disorder)

Dysthymia, also known as persistent depressive disorder, is characterized by a chronic state of depression where the individual experiences a milder level of depressive symptoms that last for a long period of time. Dysthymia depression treatment often involves long-term clinical depression psychotherapy.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) typically occurs during the fall and winter months when sunlight is scarce. Light therapy for depression is a proven treatment that helps alleviate the symptoms associated with SAD.
