We have an optional program for people with depression. Depression takes a toll. Sometimes depression can result from dealing with other health conditions. And depression can hurt your health even more. You may not eat well or exercise. You may not have the energy to care for yourself—or take steps to control your disease.

 

Are you depressed? Watch out for depression’s warning signs. You might:

 

  • Feel hopeless, very sad, anxious or irritable
  • No longer enjoy things you once did
  • Sleep too much or too little
  • Lose your appetite or overeat
  • Have thoughts of hurting yourself

 

If there’s any chance you’re depressed, tell your doctor right away. Treatment can help.
