Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest, and despair, affecting a person’s day-to-day functioning. Depression occurs more often in women than men. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, a person’s sex and age impact how a depressed mood is exhibited.

  • Men tend to be tired, irritable, and angry, showing more reckless behavior.
  • Women tend to feel sad, worthless, and guilty.
  • Older adults have more subtle signs because they’re less likely to admit to feelings of sadness or grief.  

Focus Depression Recovery Adult Residential Care at Rogers in West Allis offers compassionate, evidence-based treatment in a home-like setting.

“It’s a journey with ups and downs,” says Hemalatha Rajanna, MD, medical director, psychiatrist, adult inpatient care and Focus Depression Recovery adult residential care in West Allis. “The downs are important because you’re catching yourself and pulling yourself back up, and every time you do that, your confidence level is building. You did it last time and you can do it again.”
