Don’t Put it Off, Fight Depression Today!

Depression is an exhausting fight. But it’s a fight that is well-worth undertaking. The NY Times recently reported that the rate of suicide amongst middle-aged adults has been increasing dramatically. The CDC released a report that the suicide rate for adults between the ages of 45-to-54 has increased nearly 20% overall, and nearly 31% for women in that age bracket. This is triple the rate for teens, an age group who is usually considered the most susceptible to self-harm. If you are experiencing depression, please don’t wait to seek treatment. Help is available and can work for you. Don’t give up yet!
