A copy of the new 2013 Johns Hopkins Depression and Anxiety White Paper is ready for you right now.
You're not the only one who feels sad or worried at times. It's normal. Living in anxious times provides us with plenty of reasons to worry about our families, our country, our basic health and our safety.
It's perfectly natural for you to respond to the ups and downs we all experience with elation or fear.
It's normal and expected for you to feel grief at the loss of a loved one, or a job or a precious possession.
It's common, and occasionally even helpful, for you to react to life's stresses, challenges and dangers with anxiety.
- What's NOT perfectly natural is when those feelings persist long after the event or condition that triggered them.
- What's NOT normal and expected is when those feelings seem to come at you from nowhere, appearing even in the absence of obvious external triggers.
- What's certainly NOT helpful is feeling the weight of your emotions so heavily that they interfere with sleep, prevent you from performing daily activities or arouse concern in the people who care about you.
In its milder forms, depression or anxiety can make it difficult to even get yourself out of bed each morning and to go through the motions of your daily activities. Fatigue, inertia, feelings of sadness and recurring fears can hover like a rain cloud over your life.
In its more severe forms, depression or an anxiety disorder can immobilize you, sabotage your relationships, trigger feelings of helplessness and self-destructive behavior, and perhaps even turn your thoughts to suicide.
You DON'T have to suffer this way.
With new medications that promise greater relief with fewer side effects, as well as dramatic breakthroughs in diagnosis and treatment, Johns Hopkins specialists are expertly prepared to help you find relief. The very latest information and their best professional advice are spelled out in an important new Johns Hopkins White Paper for informed health consumers like you.
The focus of The 2013 Johns Hopkins Depression and Anxiety White Paper is on understanding and successfully coping with the most common mood and anxiety disorders.
You will benefit immeasurably if you, or someone you care about, is affected by any of the following conditions:
- major depression
- atypical depression
- bipolar disorder
- seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
- panic disorder
- generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
- obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- phobic disorders
While medication is often a significant part of treatment for mood or anxiety disorders, these conditions often have multiple causes and may respond best to a combination of treatments. The 2013 Johns Hopkins Depression and Anxiety White Paper raises your awareness of the issues involved and increases your confidence in the choices you make about your health.
- What causes mood disorders like depression and bipolar disorder, and what kind of chemical changes take place in the brain when people get depressed?
- Does depression "run in the family?" What researchers have learned from studies of identical twins, fraternal twins and adopted children whose biological parents had a mood disorder.
- The role your genes play in the kind of treatment that will work best for you. Do you know that if a certain antidepressant works well on your mother or brother, there is reason to think it might work for you?
- What's the difference between "atypical" (which is actually very common) and typical depression?
- How do people with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) respond to the brain changes that accompany shorter days and lack of sunlight?
- Can head injuries from trauma or a tumor cause behavioral changes?
- How your brain "bounces back" as you recover from depression, and what you can do to speed the process.
- Find out which medications can worsen your depression and anxiety.
Look for it when you receive your White Paper ...
Learn about the biochemical changes in the brain that trigger a depressive episode, giving rise to the overwhelming sadness and other characteristic feelings suffered by most people with depression.
You will also learn why ignorance and erroneous thinking abound when it comes to the public's understanding of depression and anxiety disorders. Test your own knowledge and see how accurately you can answer the following questions:
TRUE OR FALSE: Depression is a normal part of aging.
TRUE OR FALSE: Bipolar disorder follows a predictable pattern, appearing in adolescence or young adulthood and progressing through symmetrical cycles of mania and depression.
TRUE OR FALSE: Although exercise can ease anxiety, you need at least an hour of vigorous aerobic movement to help jog yourself out of a negative feedback loop.
Although most Americans are convinced of their truth, the answer to each of the above questions is FALSE. The 2013 Johns Hopkins Depression and Anxiety White Paper explains why and gives you accurate, responsible information to replace it.
You will have less to worry about when your copy of The 2013 Johns Hopkins Depression and Anxiety White Paper arrives.

Tested and proven drug-free ways to boost your mood
Prescription drugs aren't always the whole answer. There are steps you can take in your daily life to lift your spirits and improve your emotional outlook. Johns Hopkins doctors want you to know what can and can't be achieved with:
EXERCISE. Can exercise really help relieve symptoms of mild depression? Doctors are looking beyond just the release of endorphins (hormones that reduce pain and can boost mood) to exercise's beneficial role.
LIGHT THERAPY. You don't have to be a doctor to know how a sunny day can brighten your mood. Just how does bright-light therapy compare with antidepressant medications for seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and mild to moderate depression? The 2013 Johns Hopkins Depression and Anxiety White Paper gives you scientifically-supported ways to get the maximum benefit.
