WHAT IS DEPRESSION?
Depression is a disabling mental health condition that may manifest in several symptom clusters. Feelings of sadness and hopelessness are normal, but for people with clinical depression these feelings are persistent and severe. In fact, these feelings may be associated with difficulty concentrating and making decisions, loss of interest and pleasure in daily activities, irritability and can also be attributed to difficulty sleeping. Severe depression may result in thoughts about suicide or death.
Common Signs and Symptoms of Depression
✓ Excessive feelings of guilt
✓ Sad mood resembling grief without an explanation
✓ Overall feelings of sadness, hopelessness or guilt
✓ Rumination over minor self-related details
Depression Study Treatments
Current therapies don’t work for everybody. Patients with treatment resistant depression, or TRD, often need multiple or new medications to get the same relief. The Northwest Clinical Research Center has the opportunity to evaluate several potential treatments for depression, but this cannot be done without research volunteers.
Depression study treatments are dependent upon your current symptoms and treatment regimens. For specific details of study treatment contact us using this web form or give us a call to schedule an appointment.
