Winter Webinars: Understanding High-Functioning Depression
The official diagnosis for high-functioning depression is persistent depressive disorder or PDD. The symptoms are similar to major depression but less severe, and many people with PDD are able to maintain a relatively normal level of functioning. However, persistent fatigue, low self-esteem, poor concentration, and feeling hopeless puts people at higher-than-average risk for suicide and self-harm, and symptoms can continue indefinitely without treatment. Discuss the signs and symptoms of PDD, what causes it, and who is at risk in this one-hour seminar with a licensed therapist. Learn how PDD is treated, how lifestyle changes can help, and how to support loved ones with PDD.
