Depression

 

Depression affects the way a person thinks, acts and feels. When depressed, a person may lose perspective on events and feel that problems are unsolvable. He or she may consider options for escape, such as running away, drugs or alcohol, or even suicide. It is important to know the signs of depression to determine if psychological testing is needed.
