People with depression may not look or act like they are sick or in pain, but their symptoms are just as real as any other health problem.
How to Get Help for Yourself
Talk with your doctor about how you're feeling and treatment options.
How to Support Others
If someone you know talks about feeling depressed, be supportive and non-judgmental. Encourage them to talk with their doctor or to call NYC Well.
If you're already getting treatment for depression, know that it takes time to get better. Continue to talk with people you trust and tell your doctor if you're struggling.
