Neurocore Publishes 8 Facts about Depression That Everyone Should Know

According to an article published by Neurocore on their official website, the data obtained from several studies indicates that about 16 million adults in the US alone are affected by depression every year. This translates to about 6.7 percent of the total American population. While, on the positive side, the problem is usually fully treatable for most patients, close to two thirds of the affected people do not seek treatment and continue to suffer in silence mainly because of the stigma associated with depression. This stigma is usually borne out of ignorance and, in an attempt to eradicate such ignorance, Neurocore published a list of 8 facts that everybody should know about depression and they include the following;
 Depression is not necessarily always caused by any external factors and can just as easily develop naturally on its own. However, people exposed to some specific factors such as stressful life events may be at higher risk of depression.
 Depression can take different forms and each is classified according to the effects that it has on the people that suffer from it.
 It is not always easy to immediately detect the signs and symptoms of depression
 Depression is not just a mental problem but if affects the body physically as well
 The World Health Organization reports that it is the leading cause of disability among people aged between 15 and 44
 Research into depression is inadequate and is in urgent need of increased funding
 There is no case of depression that is too severe to be treated. However, treatment for depression is much easier if it is started during the earlier stages.
Neurocore was founded in January 2004 and is now made up of several brain performance centers located in different parts of the country. The centers provide brain-based assessments that are data driven as well as training programs which help children and adults manage their stress levels, in addition to improving their concentration and sleep patterns.
The core activities that are conducted by Neurocore Brain Performance Centers are majorly intended to provide a non-intrusive treatment option for people who suffer from depression, anxiety, ADHD, sleep challenges and other similar problems.
