Today is the day you start dealing with depression.
On any given day, over 20 million people in the U.S. are suffering from symptoms of moderate to severe depression. Worldwide, over 350 million are also experiencing depression. In fact, the World Health Organization reports that depression is the leading cause of disability in the world. People who are afflicted can’t sleep, or they sleep too much. They have no appetite or they binge on unhealthy foods. They have low energy and feel apathetic, sometimes angry, or stressed out, often unbearably sad, or … they feel nothing at all.
The signs and symptoms of adult depression may vary from person to person but the damage of untreated depression is very real. Whether it is major or mild depression, it drains our health. Our energy. Our joy.
We all have points in our lives when negative feelings overwhelm us. Depression can be triggered by terrible events or experiences, like sickness or loss. Stress and depression go hand-in-hand, as do depression and anxiety.
So how do some people deal with general or situational depression better than others? They have developed what research reveals to be a powerful depression solution: emotional resilience. And you can, too. Emotional resilience is a key component in helping to manage symptoms and prevent their return.
When we are emotionally resilient, we are better able to recognize the signs of depression. We draw on past experiences and healthier behaviors to cope with depression. And we discover that we are stronger than we ever imagined. We can carry on.
We have successfully counseled clients on coping with depression for over 50 years, and we follow the latest evidence-based research into overcoming depression very closely. We know helping someone with depression can be difficult and not everyone has access to high quality, affordable depression therapy. We developed Depression Resilience to help.
Over the course of six, 15-20 minute sessions, we share the latest evidence-based or current best practices in addressing depression. These practices include mindfulness techniques to fight depression. We give you real-world ways to deal with depression that make a difference. We include a resource-rich guide filled with videos, tips, research, and more that you can always turn to for reference or to refresh the skills you’ve learned. And whenever you need answers, reassurance, or advice, we can respond by email or through our website.
We want you to know we’ve been there. We want you to know how much we care. And we want you to know that you can do this. Resiliency skill sets can help you overcome depression.
With Resilience Tree you can start getting the depression support you need today. No matter how worn down or helpless you feel, there is a way forward.
