Depression treatment at The Bay
For some people with Depression, an unrelenting sadness or an embodied feeling of being ‘entirely numb’ can propel the individual to seek professional support or, worse, engage in other forms of unhealthy behaviors while trying to cope with or suppress their feelings and thoughts, ie. self-medicating/substance abuse/suicidal thoughts. In today’s society, most people are familiar with the range of symptoms common to depression, but it can be difficult for someone not suffering from it to understand just how debilitating depression can be.
