Low-Grade Depression May Lead To Increased Risk Of Major Depressive Episode

In a piece focused on how people cope when suffering from anxiety and high-functioning, low-grade depression, Medical Daily (8/9, Olson) points out that “because of the high risk of major depressive episodes, those who have low-grade depression should seek immediate treatment at the first sign of an issue, though it can be difficult to unmask the disorder; it often presents itself as a string of bad days or feeling low throughout a season or semester.”

Sadly, even though “anxiety disorders are highly treatable…roughly one-third receive treatment,” statistics from the Anxiety Depression Association of America indicate.
