This affliction affects millions across America...

Depression is a mental health concern that impacts the lives of men, women and children around the country. In some cases, depression is a normal state of mind that relates directly to events in life, such as the loss of a loved one or the birth of a child. Although it is normal to feel depressed after certain situations, when it starts to impact your lifestyle, it is important to learn about the treatment options that are available. The "Leading Edge" program, with host Jimmy Johnson, is pleased to announce its upcoming partnership with specialists and physicians in these fields.

Depression treatment is a term that describes a group of solutions that may help. Since each case of depression is different, the best solution for any individual may differ dramatically from the treatment that works well for another.

The common treatments that are available to help improve depressed mood include counseling, support groups and medication. Doctors may also suggest certain nutritional guidelines if the condition is directly related to a vitamin deficiency or a dietary concern.

Since depression can have a wide range of causes, the primary way that it is treated is by finding the cause and managing the symptoms. Treatment may require a greater amount of exercise, avoiding certain foods that trigger the symptoms or working through past trauma that is contributing to the symptoms.

The "Leading Edge" will discuss depression with host Jimmy Johnson. During the segments, the different types of depression are explained and the treatment options are discussed. The segments will provide information about the ways that family members can help and the solutions that doctors may suggest based on different situations.

Depression is a problem that often requires treatment to overcome. The "Leading Edge" segments on depression are available on public television. Visit to learn more about the upcoming segments that are available. "Leading Edge" isn't distributed through PBS.
