Depression Often Accompanies a Co-Occurring Disorder
Depression with anxiety, PTSD, OCD, an eating disorder or a chemical or behavioral addiction are common co-occurring disorders. While depression alone can be debilitating, when coupled with anxiety or other disorders, your well-being can be in danger.
Co-occurring disorders can feel like a “perfect storm,” hitting you hard with two different and powerful forces. Depression or anxiety do not just go away. Together, they not only do not get better, they can paralyze your ability to function.
