Communications Campaign Offers Hope for People in Need

The Clinic of Psychiatric Care announces the introduction of a local outreach campaign designed to communicate that symptoms of depression, sleeplessness, anger or anxiety are not uncommon and are in fact very treatable.

“The goal of this campaign is to let people know these conditions are very real and can be helped with the right treatment approach” says Dr. Marianne Geiger, “We want people to know that answers are available.”

The campaign is a year long effort with messages appearing in area newspapers and on television.

Nationally millions of people go through life never realizing they can improve their quality of life:

Depression

Major depression is the leading cause of disability in the USA affecting 9.5% or 18.8 million adults each year.

The International Labor Organization estimates 200 million work days are lost every year due to clinical depression.

Insomnia

60% of adults have trouble sleeping a few nights a week, 30% almost every night.

Anxiety

16% of adults and 10% of children suffer symptoms of anxiety.

Anger

20% of adults have anger management problems.

The Clinic of Psychiatric Care provides medication management, complete psychiatric evaluations and psychotherapy services to adults, older adults, adolescents and children throughout northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
