Why this resource is helpful:

Now that spring is here, depression sufferers in the Pacific Northwest are likely breathing a collective sigh of relief. But while sunshine can help people who suffer from depression, change in season alone is not usually enough to lift the blues.

Depression is a serious mental health issue which can be treated with a few recommended treatment modalities: Talk therapy, and sometimes medication prescribed by a doctor.

Unfortunately, fifty percent of people suffering from depression go without treatment. One in ten people suffering from untreated depression commit suicide.

If you or someone you love is battling depression, it is important that you reach out for help; it is unlikely that your symptoms will abate without some form of intervention.

The National Institute of Mental Health lists the following symptoms of depression:

Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
Fatigue and decreased energy
Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness
Feelings of hopelessness and/or permission
Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
Irritability, restlessness
Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex
Overeating or appetite loss
Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment
Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings
Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
