Support and Treatment Is Available

Early diagnosis and intervention with appropriate treatment are critical steps to feeling better. Echoing ADAA's mission, Terence M. Keane, PhD, of the National Center for PTSD and the VA Boston Healthcare System (and ADAA member), emphasizes this: "If you're feeling depressed and alone, or know someone who is, effective treatments are available. Consult a mental health professional today."

Both depression and anxiety carry a high risk of suicide," says Mark Pollack, MD, ADAA Past President and Grainger Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry at Rush University Medical Center. "More than 90 percent of those who die by suicide have a diagnosable illness such as clinical depression, and often in combination with anxiety or substance use disorders and other treatable mental disorders."
