It’s estimated that over 15 million Americans suffer from at least one episode of depression annually. While an exact cause of depression is difficult to identify, symptoms can be triggered by a wide range of events in one’s environment as well as physiological and chemical changes. These factors may include:
Unexpected tragic events
Side effects from medications
Improper nutrition or diet
Accumulation of toxins
Likewise, symptoms of depression come in many forms, and someone struggling with depression may not experience all of them – in fact, there may be a symptom you never experience. Don’t let this dissuade you from seeking help, as depression affects everyone differently. Some of the most common symptoms of depression include:
Feelings of emptiness or chronic pessimism
Persistent sense of worthlessness, powerlessness or guilt
Extreme lethargy and fatigue.
Inability to focus or concentrate.
Fluctuations in weight due to overeating or loss of appetite.
Suicidal or homicidal thoughts
Insomnia or difficulty getting out of bed in the morning
Physical symptoms like digestive Issues, chronic pain, and headaches

While many patients struggling with depression find that typical treatments – such as a combination of psychotherapy and common medications – are effective in treating their mental health struggles, others become frustrated that no amount of medication seems to help. This is known as treatment-resistant depression, and the team at Foundation Psychiatry specializes in the type of intervention necessary in order to address it.
If you’ve undergone multiple trials of antidepressants with no results, it may be time to try something more cutting-edge. The team at Foundation Psychiatry is proud to specialize in treatments like Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Spravato. To learn more about our treatment options, visit our Treatments page.
