Seva Family Medicine providers understand the role of both physical and mental health for your overall health and well-being, and help provide compassionate support to help you through your situation.
Depression and anxiety are two of the most common mental health challenges today, with many children and adults struggling with these conditions.
Depression occurs when persistent sadness, despair, hopelessness, and pessimism seem to take over your life. Some common signs of depression can include self-isolation, lack of interest in the things you usually enjoy, significant weight loss or gain, and insomnia or excessive sleep.
Anxiety occurs when you worry or stress out excessively, even regarding minor things. People who experience anxiety may frequently feel nervous, shaky, or tense.
Many people who struggle with anxiety feel that a disaster is always about to strike. Anxiety can cause both mental health issues and physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat. Like depression, anxiety can intrude in your daily life if not managed properly.
Up to 60% of people who experience anxiety also have depression symptoms, and vice versa.
It’s very normal for everyone to experience some sadness and nervousness from time to time. However, when those feelings start to crowd out other emotions and cause negative changes in your daily life, you can reach out to Seva Family Medicine for help.
