How can you tell if you’re clinically depressed? Sadness is inevitable in our lives, but how can you tell if what you’re feeling is truly depression? In light of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade’s recent tragic suicides, it’s vital for all of us to understand when you or your loved one is at risk. Dr. Majd, a board-certified family physician, will review the signs and symptoms of depression that doctors search for when diagnosing depression. Until we remove the stigma from mental illness, those who suffer will tragically attempt to hide their condition.
If you have thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else, I urge you to please seek help right away. Seek a trusted family member or friend. Or your doctor — this is truly what we’re here for. Know that you’re not alone ever — and please call:
