Were you looking for information about Depression? Depresion is a common misspelling of depression.
Depression is a serious illness that affects a person's body, mood, and thoughts. It is estimated that in any given one-year period, almost 10 percent of the population has this condition. It can result in symptoms such as restlessness and irritability; feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness; and persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment.
Risk factors for depression include a history of substance abuse, certain medical illnesses (such as a stroke), and a family history of the condition. It is often treated with medications, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two. Some people with milder forms of the disorder may do well with psychotherapy alone. Most people do best with a combined treatment plan.
