    Depression is a medical matter that you
    talk to someone about to determine if
    you need help or just more positive things

    and training to diagnose or treat this
    medical condition. Ask those who know.

    At least one article offers the potential for
    new research to help.

     reduce clinical depression. It’s also useful to anyone who’s felt run over by an
     uncontrollable train of negative thoughts.
