Battling Depression

Nassau Suffolk Neurology > Battling Depression

Depression is a serious condition that requires serious treatment. Depression is defined as a mental health disorder by regularly being in a depressed mood or having zero interest in everyday activities. Unfortunately, some people are afraid to admit that they are depressed, which is a horrible act because then they’re not getting the treatment you need and deserve. If you do not try to solve your depression than it is likely that you will become more depressed. If you or a loved one is suffering from depression, book an appointment with Nassau Suffolk Neurology. Our neurologist in Babylon wants to ensure that you are happy and have a purpose in everything that you do.
