An estimated 19 million American adults are living with major depression
In response to the challenges and setbacks in life, we’ll all experience sad, down, or low moods.

Depression and other mood problems last longer, are more intense, and often don’t naturally resolve within several days like a down mood.

Are you experiencing depression?

Common signs of depression include:
