Depression is a mental health disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and discouragement. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how one feels, thinks, and behaves. Depression is more than just a bout of blues. This mood disorder is an ongoing problem, lasting for at least two weeks and can persist for months or even years.
Individuals suffering from depression may have trouble performing normal day-to-day activities and sometimes may feel as if life is not worth living. The symptoms of major depression interfere with an individual's ability to work, sleep, study, eat, and enjoy themselves, even activities which had previously been pleasurable. However, most sufferers of depression improve with medication, psychotherapy, or both.
We at Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conduct clinical trials for investigative medications for the treatment of depression. Qualified research participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost. Help advance medicine and medical research through participating in our clinical trial!
