Dr. Janet Taylor: Am I Depressed? (VIDEO)

[ 0 ] July 20, 2010 |

Feeling sad? Low energy? Watch Dr. Janet Taylor —  clinical instructor of psychiatry at Columbia University at Harlem Hospital, contributing editor at BeWell.com and psychiatrist in a private practice — on the signs that your low spirits may mean that you’re actually clinically depressed and need medication.

To recap: How can you tell if you’re depressed? The two indicators are time and duration. If you feel down, depressed, sad and with a loss of interest that lasts longer than two weeks, which really interrupts functioning, ability to work, relationships… then that could mean that you’re clinically depressed. The good news? It’s treatable with medication and therapy.
