You may be experiencing symptoms of depression.  There are many causes for depression.  It is not your fault and it doesn’t mean you are weak or lazy.  There are some very effective treatments for depression!  Contact a Catholic Charities North Dakota Counselor to discuss your options for dealing with depression. 

  • Are you feeling broken or damaged because of something traumatic that happened to you a long time ago? 
  • Do you find yourself struggling to trust or get along with others?
