About Depression with Suicidality

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a medical condition that can cause emotional, physical, behavioral and cognitive symptoms.2

It is estimated that depression affects one in every fifteen adults yearly, and one in every six people will experience depression at one point in their lives. Depression can happen to anyone at any time, but usually tends to affect those in their late teens to mid-twenties.3

Because depression can cause a variety of symptoms for different people, it is important to be aware of the signs and signals:

  • Feeling sad
  • Feeling worthless or guilty
  • Changes in sleep pattern
  • Changes in appetite (weight loss or gain unrelated to dieting)
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed

Thoughts of death or suicide may also be a symptom of depression. Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States. Approximately 1.3 million adults attempt suicide each year in the US, and 90% of all individuals who commit suicide suffer from a diagnosable psychiatric disorder, like depression.

If you or someone you know may be showing symptoms of depression, seek out professional medical advice for a proper diagnosis

The Depression & Suicidality Study is researching a new investigational medication for those with depression who are at risk of suicide.
