Depression Treatment

Healing and wholeness are possible with the right depression therapy.  

An All-Consuming Struggle

It isn’t simply feeling sad or negative for a while. On the contrary, depression is a major mood disorder that affects millions every year. This serious medical condition can impact every part of your life, dulling your emotions and disconnecting you from the world around you. 

Consequently, depressed individuals can seek out negative ways to cope, from self-harm to substance abuse. Yet these only make things worse. Fortunately, there is a better way, and it involves getting professional therapy for depression. At Integrative Life Center, our Nashville-based depression therapist team understands the various depressive disorders you may be experiencing and offers an array of treatment options to help.

What is Depression?

Depression is a mental health issue that can impact anyone. In fact, one in six adults will struggle with it in their lifetime, according to the American Psychiatric Association. As a mood disorder, depression causes a serotonin imbalance in the brain that can last for weeks or months at a time. Because of this, individuals enduring depression feel sadness and lose interest in activities as they experience symptoms like fatigue or difficulty concentrating.

As symptoms compound, sometimes individuals develop eating disorders due to their depression as they eat too much or too little. Prolonged negative thoughts during depression can eventually manifest as self-harming behaviors and even thoughts of suicide.

Factors That Contribute to Thoughts of Suicide
