What Is Depression?
Depression is a mental health disorder that impacts your mood, causing you to feel sad and hopeless, even when there is no known cause. You may also lose interest in your daily activities or doing the things you once enjoyed. Sometimes called major depressive disorder (MDD), the condition can occur in patients of all ages, from young children to elderly people. In some cases, depression is thought to be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain while other causes of depression include substance abuse, illness, death of a loved one, and stressful life events. At Lawrence Family Practice Center in Lawrence, KS, our skilled team provides compassionate care and top treatments for a number of different mood disorders. Book an appointment today.
