A South Dakotan’s Recovery from Depression

If you’re feeling down and don’t think life is worth living,  Carol Baker has a message worth hearing!  Carol, who battled depression for years, savors life moment by moment.

“No matter how ill you get, no matter how down you are—there is help out there.  Medications are getting better every day.  Medications work.  There is therapy and there are groups like the National Alliance on Mental Illness that can point you in the right direction.  There are people willing to listen to you.  The first step is reaching out and admit you need some treatment just like if you have a physical disorder and get the help that is available.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 9 percent of adult Americans have feelings of hopelessness, despondency, and/or guilt that generate a diagnosis of depression.  If you’re among them, Carol Baker says help is available.

“The earlier you start treatment, the more likely you are to get a handle on the condition.  The best defense against depression may very well be knowledge and awareness.”
