What is Depression?

Depression is a complex mental health condition that significantly impacts how a person feels, thinks, and manages daily activities. It’s characterized by an overwhelming sense of sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness that doesn’t just go away on its own. Unlike the normal fluctuations in mood that everyone experiences, depression is persistent and can profoundly disrupt one’s life.

Depression arises from a confluence of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. It can be triggered by a life crisis, physical illness, or something else, but in some cases, it may arise without a clear cause. Understanding that depression is a real, medical condition that requires professional intervention is crucial. It’s not a sign of a person’s weakness or a flaw in character; it’s a health issue as significant as any physical ailment.

Symptoms of Depression

Depression manifests in various ways and its symptoms can be physical, emotional, and cognitive. These symptoms include, but are not limited to:

Emotional Symptoms

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness, or hopelessness
  • Angry outbursts, irritability, or frustration, even over small matters
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies, or sports
  • Anxiety, agitation, or restlessness
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or self-blame

Physical Symptoms

  • Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort
  • Changes in appetite — either decreased appetite and weight loss or increased cravings for food and weight gain
  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much
  • Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches

Cognitive Symptoms

  • Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions, and remembering things
  • Slowed thinking, speaking, or body movements
  • Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts, or suicide
  • Inability to meet the responsibilities of daily life

How Can Good Health Help?

Good Health Psychology specializes in providing comprehensive mental health services, including effective treatment options for depression in Manhattan. Our approach is personalized, and evidence-based, and focuses on the holistic well-being of each patient. Here’s how we can help:

  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Understanding that each person’s experience with depression is unique, we create customized treatment plans tailored to the individual needs and circumstances of our patients.
  • Evidence-Based Therapies: We offer a range of therapeutic options, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which has been proven effective in treating depression by helping individuals change negative thought patterns and behaviors.
  • TMS Therapy: Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive treatment option that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain to improve symptoms of depression. It is particularly beneficial for patients who have not experienced significant improvement with traditional treatment methods.
  • Supportive Environment: Our clinic provides a supportive and understanding environment where patients can feel safe to express themselves and work through their challenges.

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

Dr. V. Rudoy is a wonderful doctor. Very professional and attentive. I have been seeing him for psychiatric care for a number of years and highly recommend him and this office in general. I’ve seen other psychiatric professionals who work with Dr. Rudoy here on occasion and they are all very competent and warm-hearted.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
