Do you have a mood disorder?
Mood disorders are a category of illnesses that describe a serious change in mood. Illnesses categorized as mood disorders include: depression, bipolar disorder, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). About 20% of the US population reports at least one depressive symptom in a given month.
Mood disorders are highly treatable with steps such as medication, psychotherapy (talk therapy), and lifestyle changes. Many people find that after treatment, their lives are completely normal and they are happy again.
If you think the way you are feeling may mean you have a mood disorder and that you could benefit from treatment, take a free and anonymous mental health screening.
