Understanding Depression

Major Depressive Disorder is considered a mood disorder that includes symptoms such as sadness and emptiness, affecting sleep, eating, and work functions. To be diagnosed with major depression, the symptoms must be present for at least 2 weeks.

Depression is a complex and multifaceted mental health condition that can cast a shadow over all aspects of your life. At Clarity Clinic, we understand the profound impact of depression on mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Our approach is rooted in empathy and understanding, offering you a safe and non-judgmental space to explore your feelings, heal from within, and embark on a path of recovery.

Signs and Symptoms of Depression

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), a reference manual used by health care professionals as the authoritative guide to the diagnosis of mental disorders, the signs, and symptoms of major depressive disorder includes:

  • Depressed or low mood for most of the day, nearly every day for at least two weeks
  • Little to no interest in activities or tasks
  • Decrease in appetite and/or weight
  • Trouble sleeping or desire to sleep all the time
  • Lack of energy
  • Feelings of low self-worth
  • Lack of concentration or focus
  • Recurrent thoughts of suicide or death with plans or attempts


Children and Depression

Children and teens can be diagnosed with major depressive disorder, and exhibit the same symptoms as adults, however, additional symptoms include anger and irritability.

Assessment for Major Depressive Disorder

A diagnosis of major depressive disorder or other depressive disorders requires an evaluation and diagnosis by a licensed clinician such as a psychiatrist or psychologist who specializes in depressive disorders. At Clarity Clinic, we specialize in depressive disorder assessments and treatment for children, teens, and adults aimed at understanding the severity, length, and frequency of the symptoms, including ruling out a differential diagnosis, to determine the best treatment options.

Treatment for Major Depressive Disorder

Both medication and psychotherapy in conjunction have been shown to be effective in helping reduce symptoms of major depressive disorders. At Clarity Clinic our experienced depression therapists guide clients toward the proper treatments, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions.
