Finding Hope & Treating Depression

We understand you may be hurting. You may feel alone, suffering under an unbearable sense of grief, sadness, hopelessness, or isolation. But you are not alone. In the U.S., 16 million Americans battle depression every year, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Depression affects every person differently, but it is treatable.
At Pasadena Villa, we have been successfully treating depression for over 25 years. If you or a loved one is seeking treatment for depression or has questions about depression treatment, please reach out to our compassionate Admissions Team. Recovery is possible and we’re here to help.

Depression FAQs

Yes. Taking control of your depression takes time, and small steps can often make big differences. Trying a few of the steps listed below may help alleviate some of your depression symptoms:
  • Try to see a professional as soon as possible
  • Try to be active and exercise
  • Go to a movie, concert, sporting event, or activity that you once enjoyed
  • Join a local sports league, volunteer in the community, or find a group of interest
  • Set realistic goals for yourself and break up large tasks into small ones, setting priorities and doing what you can as you can
  • Try to spend time with other people and confide in a trusted friend or relative
  • Meditate

Unfortunately, there is no absolute cure for depression, yet. However, even the most severe cases of depression are treatable. Learning about your particular type of depression through clinical consultation can help you understand your symptoms and any possible underlying causes for what you may be experiencing. Medication as well as beneficial life changes can aid in the treatment of depression, including developing restful sleep patterns, increasing exercise, improving nutrition, establishing a strong support network, and finding ways to reduce/eliminate stress. Your mental health professional can help determine the most effective treatments for long-lasting relief from depression.

At some point, almost everyone experiences depression. Depression affects both men and women, however, it’s twice as common among women than among men, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Studies show that 20% of women experience at least one episode of depression in their lifetimes. And researchers believe that certain biological, hormonal, and psychosocial factors unique to women may be linked to higher rates of depression.
