Depression

When your chips are down, it may be hard to tell the difference between just another bad day at the office and clinical depression. If you find yourself frequently sad, having trouble sleeping or lacking motivation, try taking our depression health assessment test. It can help you determine if your symptoms are simply related to stress or warrant further investigation by a licensed physician or mental health practitioner. Those in need of professional assistance, can find a wide range of services through Atlantic Behavioral Health >
