What Exactly is Depression?

Depression goes far beyond mere sadness; it's a complex mood disorder that manifests in many different ways, profoundly impacting individuals' emotional well-being, relationships, and overall quality of life. While depression has no singular cause, it can be influenced by many things including biological and environmental stressors. It can affect anyone at any age and is very prevalent today.

In our culture, there's an expectation of constant happiness, which can be exhausting and contribute to feelings of sadness. It's important to recognize that experiencing a range of emotions is normal and valid. At Soul Centric Counseling, we comprehend the intricate nature of depression and stand ready to offer compassionate, tailored support.
