Symptoms of Clinical Depression in African-Americans

Symptoms of Clinical Depression in African-Americans

Depression may be exhibited differently among African-Americans due to cultural differences. To help identify if you—or someone you know—requires screening for clinical depression from a licensed mental health counselor, Breaking Barriers Wellness & Counseling is providing you with a list of signs and symptoms that can help.

If you experience five or more of the following signs for longer than two weeks, and if any of these symptoms interfere with your daily routine, consult a mental health expert immediately:

  • A persistent sad or “empty” mood or excessive crying
  • Irritability
  • Decreased energy, experiencing fatigue
  • Reduced appetite and weight loss, or the opposite—an increased appetite and weight gain
  • Sleeping too much or too little

We understand how difficult it can be to find the right place to receive quality mental health care in North Carolina.

That is why we make sure that our mental health service in Raleigh, North Carolina are accessible to everyone out there that needs treatment. For more information, you may contact us here.

We also provide the services of a black counselor, if that will make our patients more comfortable with receiving care. Your mental health should never be taken for granted.
