Ottawa, CA (PRWEB) November 02, 2012
For those who have concerns about the role depression plays in their family, Family Therapy Ottawa is giving away free phone consultations. This giveaway was inspired by an article posted in October on LiveScience which connected stress and depression to a new level. According to the study, over-excited immune systems can cause depression as a response to stress, almost like an allergen. The study results are not a shock to those who have experienced depression, as the symptoms can often seem similar to the body’s response to physical ailments.
Family -Therapy would like to offer their free phone consultation to any parents or families that have concerns about depression and stress. Because childhood depression can really impact a child’s life, it is important to seek counseling for any young person who displays depression symptoms. The staff at Family Therapy in Ottawa includes registered social workers and therapists that can help children and teens cope with their depression symptoms. For this reason, they feel confident that they can help families who may have read the LiveScience study that are concerned that stress may be causing depression for their loved ones.
Symptoms of depression can include feelings of sadness, loss of appetite, changes in sleep patterns, and for children this is often seen through social withdrawal, irritability, and vocal outbursts. No two people experience depression in the same way, so seeking therapy for those that seem to have potential symptoms is crucial. Stressors for children can include major life events or their environment, and are not to be overlooked.
Of course, depression can affect anyone in a family, from parents to teens to young children. For this reason, Family -Therapy is happy to offer free phone consultations to best fit each family’s needs.
