Depression, Can Tang Psychiatric Treatment AreaDepression is one of the most common psychiatric conditions, affecting more than 19 million people. Most people with depression do not get treatment for a variety of reasons, for example because they don’t recognize what it is or because they are embarrassed to see a psychiatrist.  The cause of depression is not exactly known.  It is likely a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental factors.  Without psychiatric treatment, it can affect one’s relationship, cause poor work or school performance, and tragically even lead to suicide. During depression one may feel hopeless, but there are numerous treatments available that can be safe and effective.

Patients will describe that they are sad but don’t know why or that they will cry for no reason and that they can’t stop crying.  They may say “I have been depressed all my life” or “I have been depressed for as long as I can remember.” Some patients who are depressed say that they don’t enjoy doing things anymore. Some other common complaints are: problems getting out of bed, not wanting to do things with friends, lack of motivation, not wanting to leave the house, sleeping problem, difficulty making decisions, memory problems, changes in appetite, hopeless thoughts and even thoughts of death. Depression is very treatable.  Whether your depression is chemical or due to the stress of living in Orange County,  Dr. Tang will develop a comprehensive psychiatric treatment plan to help you find happiness.
