Depression: Robin Williams and 10% of Floridians have it. If you are like me, you were extremely sad to hear about the death of Robin Williams. Along with sadness, you may also be feeling confusion. How could a man who had so much be depressed? He had all the money he needed to have the best things in life as well as to get the best medical treatment. Yet he was severely depressed. According to the CDC, 9.1% of the US population struggles with depression! In Florida, that number is closer to 10%.
WHO TENDS TO BE THE MOST DEPRESSED?
Depression can impact children, adolescents, and adults. Depression does not discriminate based on age, race, or gender. However, a study by the CDC found the following groups most likely to meet the criteria for depression:
•People between the ages of 45-64
•Blacks, Hispanics, and those with mixed or multiple races
•Those without a high school education
•People who have been previously married
•Individuals who are unemployed or disabled
•Those without health insurance
HELP IS AVAILABLE!
You don’t have to let depression keep you from fulfilling relationships, a successful career, or enjoying other aspects of your life. The root cause of depression is not a “drug deficiency.” While medication can be helpful, and sometimes necessary, we seek to get to the root of the issue so drugs will not be needed or no longer be required.
Our unique approach is very effective and almost always quicker than traditional therapy. Most of our clients start to see improvement immediately and require less than 10 sessions for ongoing health. Traditional approaches focus on the areas that are really out of your control. We take a different approach. We walk you through a plan that will allow you to take back control and live your life free from this emotional pit fall. Isn’t it time that you started to experience the freedom that you deserve?
