Seeing it more clearly: 5 perspectives on understanding depression

While there is better public awareness of depression, we find that people often lack an understanding of THEIR depression. They know they are depressed, but not why. The mystery factor leads people to search for answers in the wrong places, potentially prolonging and worsening their depression. It is our belief that depression is explainable in the vast majority of instances. Effective therapy addresses any lack of understanding as a matter of priority. So if you are seeking therapeutic support for depression, make sure your therapist helps you make sense of it.
