Those who suffer from depression know it can be a crippling, isolating experience. Because depression is a disorder that impairs motivation, initiative and will, others may not appreciate the impact depression can have on seemingly simple activities of daily life. People cannot “just snap out of it” or “look on the bright side.” In fact, untreated depression is the leading cause of suicide and worldwide disability.
Yellowbrick, located in Evanston, just north of Chicago, Illinois, works with patients suffering from depression through an integrated coherent model, combining genetically informed pharmacology, nutraceuticals, transcranial magnetic stimulation, neurofeedback and multiple forms of psychotherapy. For those who need the support of an emerging adult sober peer community, our landmark supported apartment treatment program at The Residence is available. Yellowbrick’s interventions with patients are able to stabilize deregulated neural pathways, relieving symptoms and maximizing the possibility for new learning, growth and healing. The Residence and peer community help to restore self-efficacy and self-worth by fostering independence and healthy living in a supportive, safe environment that allows the practice of independent living skills.
