Understanding Depression: More Than a Bad Day
Everyone feels sad once in a while, but depression is more than normal sadness and doesn’t go away in a few days. It is a serious, yet treatable, illness that affects an estimated 16 million Americans. Depression interferes with a person’s ability to function and get through their daily routine. If left untreated, it can lead to extreme hopelessness and suicidal thoughts or actions. Depression is not caused by one single factor. While genetics can play a role in the cause of depression, it can happen spontaneously or be triggered by a life crisis, serious physical illness, childbirth or other major life events.

Do You Have a Mental Illness?
People often use the terms mental health and mental illness interchangeably, but just as with any other medical condition, you are healthy or you are ill.  It is a serious mistake to call it a mental health issue when someone has a mental illness.  They are sick.  It is real, and because people do not understand the difference, it can interfere with proper treatment.

When Is It Time to Seek Psychiatric Help – And What Are The Treatment Options
At Silver Hill, we are frequently asked about seeking help — when is it time, what are the options. As the hospital's Physician-in-Chief, I'm going to try and give you some answers. Before discussing what I consider to be my basic guidelines, there is one rule that is hard and fast, no matter what: If a person is in danger of harming him/herself or anyone else, get immediate help.

An individual in that state is volatile and unpredictable and it is best to call professionals.
