Depression is more than a case of the blues. When a sad mood lasts for an extended period of time and interferes with a person’s day-to-day functioning, it could be a sign of clinical depression.
Different factors can cause depression, including:
- Experiencing traumatic or stressful events, such as physical or sexual abuse, the death of a loved one, or financial problems
- Going through a major life change‚ even if it was planned
- Using alcohol or drugs
- Having a medical problem
Steve started to experience anxiety and depression following a medical procedure. He stopped doing the things he enjoyed, including playing with his son.
“Life lost all color,” says Steve.
Following a neighbor’s advice, Steve sought intensive outpatient treatment at Rogers.
“We went right to work on what do I want to do tomorrow? What’s coming up next week or next month and how can I engage in those things?” he says.
