Conquer Your Depression - Juneau County



It’s been a part of life for Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Robin Williams and countless others.  It’s not stardom, but is something that your neighbors, co-workers, friends, family members, and perhaps even you may be living with.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a man, woman, young or old, depression can affect anyone!
Depression is a serious, treatable illness that influences how you feel, think and act.  Over 20 million Americans are diagnosed each year - many times it enters the lives of those already dealing with another disease.  Most people who develop depression do not seek help. However, when treated, 80 percent of cases are cleared up successfully.
If you are worried that depression is bringing you down, you have nothing to be ashamed of.  You are certainly not alone and there is help available locally.  Attend the ‘Conquer Your Depression’ seminar that will be held at Mile Bluff Medical Center in Mauston on Thursday, January 26 at 7 pm.

Topics to be discussed include:
·         myths surrounding depression and how to challenge them
·         purpose of depression and what it is
·         potential benefits of counseling and medication use
·         how to recognize a depressive episode is coming and what to do about it
     
      To find out more about this informative session, call 608-847-1285.
