Depression: it's not just sadness anymore

depression Ongoing sadness or unhappiness can be a sign of depression, but depression can also be hidden beneath other symptoms--such as fatigue, chronic aches and pains, weight loss and insomnia--that may have nothing to do with feeling blue.
   Evergreen Hospital Medical Center is holding a free community forum to help you learn more about the many facets of depression. Ed Walker, Ph.D., associate professor from the UW department of psychiatry, will discuss the different types and causes of depression, the latest in medications and self-help techniques that can help you feel better and maintain a greater sense of happiness and well-being.
   "Depression: It's Not Just Sadness Anymore" takes place Dec. 4, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Evergreen Hospital Medical Center Auditorium.
