Depression and anxiety are two of the most common types of mental illness in the United States. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, an estimated 19 percent of U.S. adults suffer from anxiety disorders, and 7 percent suffer from depression. When you consider how common they are, you may think that there are solutions available to treat these conditions. There are, but they require you to reach out for help. Our team at Fort Behavioral Health can help make that possible. Contact the experts at Fort Behavioral Health today at 844.332.1807 to learn about our mental health and dual diagnosis treatment programs.
What Are Depression and Anxiety?
Depression is a condition in which a person feels profoundly sad, often without a reason to feel that way. Usually, these feelings of sadness and hopelessness last for over two weeks.
Conversely, those who have anxiety will suffer from feelings of worry and fear when it is ungrounded for other people to feel this way. In both cases, these are mental illnesses.
They can be brought on by many factors, but what both depression and anxiety have in common is changing your life and the way you see things around you. If you are struggling, seek help from a depression treatment program.
Do You Have Depression?
Depression is more than just feeling sad every once in a while. Most people feel sadness at times, particularly if you’ve lost a loved one, or you’ve recently broken up with a long-term partner. What is worrisome is when these feelings of sadness and hopelessness occur over a long period of time. You may have both physical and behavioral symptoms of depression, such as:
- Trouble sleeping
- Aches and pains, gastro problems without any cause
- A lack of energy or motivation
- Feelings of sadness, emptiness, and anxiety that does not go away
- Loss of interest in the things you used to like to do
- Feelings of guilt
- Thoughts of hurting yourself or others
Do You Have Anxiety?
Anxiety often relates to feelings of worry and fear, which are also normal feelings to have when the circumstances call for them. For those with anxiety disorders, these feelings do not improve and may seem to come out of nowhere. Common symptoms include:
- Being tired often
- Racing heart
- Grinding teeth
- Trouble sleeping, concentrating or remembering
- Feeling restlessness or on edge
When you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek out help for depression and anxiety from a licensed therapist at an anxiety treatment center.
