May is Mental Illness Awareness Month (05/22/2013)
From: Lauren O’Connell

May is Mental Illness Awareness Month. Depression is a medical illness that affects thoughts, feelings, behavior, mood and physical health. Depression is a major medical illness just like diabetes and heart disease. It is also quite common. Depression affects one in six men and one in four women. Major depression goes beyond temporarily feeling sad or blue. It can occur at any age and to anyone. Some symptoms of depression include; change in sleep patterns, change in appetite, impaired concentration and decision-making, loss of interest and feelings of hopelessness or guilt. To treat depression it is important that a person seeks help with a medical provider. As friends and family of someone living with depression they are in need of understanding, compassion, patience and respect during this period in their life. Depression is not something to be taken lightly.
