Depression & Anxiety
At times, almost everyone feels depressed or anxious; these feelings are normal. However, when these feelings overcome someone’s ability to function, they may be afflicted with an anxiety disorder or depression, and sometimes both.
Major depressive disorder affects approximately 14.8 million American adults in a given year. And, approximately 40 million American adults ages 18 and older have an anxiety disorder in a given year.
