Definition

Depression is the most common mental disorder suffered by Americans. The incidence of depression is slightly higher in women than men. Depression is an emotional state which can have a very real physiological basis. "Chronic depression is now recognized as a disorder of chemistry, not character" (Medscape Mental Health 2(6), 1997). Decreased production of neurotransmitters (mainly serotonin, but including dopamine, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine) all play a role in depression. This imbalance in neurotransmitters, as well as the bombardment of environmental toxic assaults to the body can create these very real and intense feelings of sadness and despair. Psychological causes must, of course, also be addressed. Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder encountered in general medical practice. Over 19 million people in the United States suffer from depression at one time each year. If more than four of the symptoms below are experienced, a trained licensed professional should be consulted.
