Montclair Health Associates offers a Depression Screening program for individuals, and businesses and their employees.
Clinical depression is a serious medical illness.
Clinical depression can lead to suicide.
Sometimes people with depression mistakenly believe that the symptoms of depression are a "normal part of life."
Clinical depression affects men and women of all ages, races and socioeconomic groups.
One in four women and one in ten men will experience depression at some point during their lifetime.
Two thirds of those suffering from the illness do not seek the necessary treatment.
Depression can co-occur and complicate other medical conditions.
More than 80% of all clinical depression cases can be effectively treated with medication, psychotherapy or a combination of both.
Screenings are often the first step in getting help.
