Help your clients/patients practice healthier self-talk. Email, upload or print this flyer (PDF) to share with them!

As you know, depression is an illness that makes a person feel sad or hopeless much of the time. It’s different from feeling a little sad or down. Depression can be treated with counseling or medicine, or both.

Find other resources you can share on depression and other mental health topics on Magellan's Mind Your Mental Health page.
