Depression is often characterized by prolonged emotional symptoms and commonly manifests through a variety of physical ailments. Depression and anxiety often exacerbate each other, and people with depression commonly have difficulty concentrating on tasks and conversations. Depression may lead some to abuse alcohol and drugs or overeat as a way of coping, causing them to develop other medical problems. Untreated depression can also increase the risk of self-harm.
While the causes of depression are not fully understood, healing is possible. Our counselors at Memorial Christian Counseling are able to explore a number of effective therapeutic approaches for depression. Every person is unique and deserves individual attention. Our goal is to provide the specific support you need to rediscover the hope God offers.
