Do You Suffer From Depression?

Depression

Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the country.

Did you know that nearly 17.3 million Americans suffered with depression-related disorders in the United States in 2017? That’s 7.1% of the U.S. adult population. That number is only expected to grow in 2020. Sadly, it’s left more and more Americans with the challenge of finding a safe, convenient, and affordable mental healthcare provider for themselves and their family members.

It’s important to remember that you are not alone. Whether you’re a new mother dealing with postpartum depression or if you’ve been clinically diagnosed as major depressive in the past. For all stages, ages, and walks of life – the journey toward a better you is always our ultimate goal.
