While we have all felt "blue" or "down" at times in our lives, and "up" at other times, mood disorders represent the extremes of the normal continuum of our mood. When feelings of sadness and hopelessness or extreme elevated mood and irritation begin to last beyond a week or two and interfere with life and relationships, you may be suffering from depression or bipolar disorder, the two most common mood disorders. One out of every six adults will experience a depressive episode during their lifetimes. Psychotherapy has been shown to be very effective in helping with most depressive episodes.
