What is clinical depression?

Clinical depression, also known as major depressive disorder (MDD), is a serious mood disorder. According to the CDC, 6.7% of the population will experience a depressive episode this year, and 14% will have an episode within their lifetimes. Over 40% of patients have a treatment-resistant form of clinical depression, which does not respond to medications. Ultimately, depression is common and is unlikely to go away on its own.

Your Path to Treatment

Typical treatment plans begin with a combination of psychotherapy (or telepsychiatry) and medication management. However, if a patient isn’t finding relief after trying two or more medications, their provider may suggest treatment plans such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or Spravato (Eketamine) nasal spray.

However, all treatment plans are customized to each individual patient. Our talented team of clinicians and support staff is dedicated to working with patients collaboratively to find a treatment plan that works for them. Our goal is to help patients find relief in a way that feels like them.

Why Mindful Health Solutions?

Sadly, depression is an all-too-common condition that impacts millions of people in the United States alone. We want to bring that number down one person at a time, starting with you.

Overall, we understand the importance of patient-centered care. One size does not fit all when it comes to mental health treatment. Patients respond well to the dynamic menu of treatments we offer, which includes traditional medication management and psychotherapy as well as cutting-edge alternatives such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Spravato (Esketamine).

Mindful Health Solutions also wants to make treatment comfortable and accessible. We offer telepsychiatry if patients are physically unable to come into the office or prefer a virtual appointment. This option allows patients to get care from wherever they are in the state. We also foster a strong culture of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Our therapists strive to embody a sense of awareness, respect, and humility with regard to cultural differences. And last but not least, we accept most major insurances.

Depression FAQs

How can I tell if I'm depressed?

Depression is a challenging, and often debilitating, disease that needs to be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible to achieve the best results.

To begin the process, it’s important to check in with yourself. If you are undergoing stress and/or emotional changes, which is not uncommon in this day and age, ask yourself these important questions:

  • How are you coping with the stress? What coping skills do you have?
  • Is your daily routine (sleep, appetite, energy, motivation) being affected in any way?
  • Are you seeing changes in your grades, work performance, relationships, or social interactions?

More specific questions that you can ask yourself are:

  • Are you staying in your room/home all/most of the day and/or avoiding social interactions?
  • Do you cry more days than not?
  • Do you have a change in your appetite or weight?
  • Are you no longer interested in hobbies or activities that used to bring them joy?
  • Are you quick to anger or agitation?
  • Do you hurt yourself?
  • Are you not taking care of your physical appearance?
  • Are you participating in risky behavior?

You could also complete this Depression Screen for a more detailed and thorough check.

If the answers to the above questions or if their results from the Depression Screen are concerning, then your radar for depression should be high.

The next step is to seek professional assistance from a psychologist or psychiatrist to clarify the diagnosis. Depending on the diagnosis, the doctor can work with you to come up with an individualized treatment plan that works for you and your needs. This treatment plan can consist of psychotherapy, medication management, and/or TMS therapy.

The sooner you get treatment, the more likely you will achieve remission in this episode, which decreases your risk for future episodes as well.

What are the treatment options for depression?

Treatment for depression can come in a variety of formats. Traditional medications as well as therapy can be the first line of defense when learning to manage depression symptoms. If the depression becomes more treatment-resistant after two or more medication attempts, alternatives such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Spravato (Esketamine) can be options to help lessen severe depression symptoms.

How do most people cope with depression?

Finding the treatment plan that works best for you is the first step to taking care of the depression symptoms you may have. Those treatments alongside therapy and psychotherapy allow people to work through what is going on in their minds and bodies as well as learn coping mechanisms and tools to help them get back to feeling like themselves.

There are a variety of treatments and therapies for depression. We use the most advanced, effective evidence-based treatments found to help our patients find recovery and remission.
