Two commonly treated types of depression are minor and major depression. Almost everyone experiences the symptoms of minor depression in their life. Minor depression can happen with life changes like a loss of a job, change in relationship status, loss of a loved one, hormonal changes, and loneliness to name a few. Sometimes minor depression can turn into a mood disorder known as major depression. When a person struggles with major depression they lack interest in normal daily life as well as persistent sadness. We use a cognitive behavioral therapeutic approach. Research shows the best results are seen with a combination of therapy and medication management, if medication is needed at all.
