Managing Depression

Depression is a casually used word in our culture referring to minor disappointments and grief over a loss, as well as serious chronic mental health problems.  Because of this confusion in naming what is, we often struggle to know exactly what is going on when we feel bad or when it is appropriate to get help.  Learn more about this sometimes mysterious problem and what can help when you are feeling a little down or when a more serious disorder might be encroaching.  Remember though, it is better to get help and discover it is not as bad as you think than to find yourself on the edge of life before you seek help. 

Contact the DSCC Counselor/ADA Coordinator for help discerning what you might be experiencing at 731-286-3242, counselor@dscc.edu.

NOTE:  If you are experiencing an after hours emergency, please go immediately to your local hospital Emergency Room.
