About Depression

Depression is a lot more common than you may think; an estimated 21 million adults in the United States have had at least one major depressive episode.1 MDD is a disease that causes depression, more than just being sad, for most of the day, and lasts for at least two weeks or more.

Primary symptoms of MDD are depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure; while secondary symptoms of MDD include appetite or weight changes, sleep difficulties, fatigue or loss of energy, and feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt.2

There are multiple factors believed to cause MDD, including genetic, environmental, and social factors.3 MDD can be managed with various treatment measures, including therapy, medication, and lifestyle modifications.4
