Managing Depressive Disorders with Psychiatry
Psychiatric Services for Depressive Disorders and Bi-Polar Disorder
Mood disorders like depression and bipolar disorder make it difficult to focus and home or at work. The symptoms are often overwhelming, and your loved ones may fail to understand why you can’t just “snap out of it” and start feeling better. Feeling misunderstood often makes symptoms even worse, driving you deeper into a depressive or manic state.
The good thing is, there’s hope.

Depressive disorders include several conditions, such as major depressive disorder, dysthymia, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Depression is often associated with feelings sadness and hopelessness but also includes symptoms such as irritability, appetite changes, and insomnia. These feelings may last anywhere from several weeks up to several months or longer, depending on the individual.
Our team of licensed psychiatric specialists will review your symptoms and lifestyle to determine an accurate diagnosis for your depressive disorder. We’ll work with you to create a plan that helps you manage your symptoms so you can lie a fuller and more balanced life.
Bipolar disorder, also called manic depressive disorder, is characterized by periods of high energy and impulsive behavior followed by a deeply depressive state. The condition impacts an individual’s ability to perform daily tasks and may place a strain on personal and professional relationships.
We understand that bipolar disorder is a complex condition that requires individualized care. Because manic depressive disorder is sometimes confused with major depression, we conduct a full assessment to ensure an accurate diagnosis.
