Depression – The Black Dog

Depression – The Black Dog

At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don’t know where to turn for help.

However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.

If you require treatment for depression or depression counselling you are welcome to contact Vision Counselling and Psychology Perth to speak with a counsellor or find a psychologist to help.
