Depression Intervention Program

Depression Intervention Program

Depression is more than just “feeling blue” or having a bad day. Depression and Bipolar Disorder are serious health problems that effect feelings, thoughts and actions. They are not personal weakness or character flaws. Individuals cannot simply “snap out of it.” It is estimated that in the U.S. as many as 1 in 33 children, 1 in 8 teens and 16 million adults will battle clinical depression one or more times within their life. Bipolar disorder will affect 5.7 million adults and 2.6% of teens between the ages of 13 – 18 years. Fortunately, treatment is available and highly effective. Our specialized team of Board Certified Psychiatrists, Advanced Practice Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers and Professional Counselors offer high quality treatment interventions which include Medication Management, Cognitive Behavioral, Interpersonal and Family Systems Therapies.
