Therapy for Depression, Anxiety, and Bipolar Disorder
Sobering Statistics about Mood Disorders:
The World Health Organization (WHO) has ranked depression as the 4th leading cause of disability worldwide, and estimates that it will be the 2nd leading cause by 2020.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the United States, affecting nearly 40 million adults over the age of 18.
Adolescents are the most prone to Social Anxiety Disorder, starting around the age of 13, and many adolescents and adults suffering from these disorders don't receive proper care. Less than one third of those who suffer from such disorders get appropriate care.
And Bipolar disorder has historically been one of the most difficult disorders to diagnose.
Psychotherapy is Effective
Research has shown repeatedly that individual psychotherapy, in various forms, is effective in treating mood disorders. Depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder are devastating diseases with consequences for families as well and for the individual themselves. With bipolar disorder, family focused treatments have been proven to be effective.
If you struggle with a mood disorder, reaching out for help can be very difficult. People can feel overwhelmed with feelings of shame, embarrassment, ineffectiveness, procrastination, worry and fear. People with mood disorders can often become very isolated, feeling very separated and distant from their loved ones.
But therapy works, and developing a thorough understanding of your disorder and its effects on you and your loved ones can open up new choices and avenues for you, creating a different path going forward.
