Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness, hopelessness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living. Depression differs from “the blues” or “feeling down” when it begins to interfere with everyday activities such as work and school and impacts your personal relationships. Dr. Libben uses a combination of cognitive behavioural and interpersonal therapy to help alleviate symptoms of depression.
