Clinical depression is a medical illness affecting more than 19 million American adults each year. Like screenings for physical illnesses, screenings for mental and emotional health are important for overall wellness. Screenings are a good way to find out if depression might be the cause of feelings like prolonged sadness, anxiety, irritability, loss of pleasure, hopelessness and worthlessness, and even physical pain.
