All About Depression
Depression is the most common mood disorder in the U.S. and prevalent throughout the world. It is also referred to as major depressive disorder or clinical depression. This extremely debilitating mental illness consists of repeated and ongoing sadness, loss of interest or excitement in activities, decreased appetite and energy, and inability to concentrate.
This plush representation features a brain with a thought cloud outlined by a silver lining. For families, teachers, healthcare professionals, public health agencies and friends - this is a unique, memorable and useful tool to help educate, spread awareness, and hopefully, get more people talking about this complicated and vitally important mental health topic.
Depression is the most common mood disorder in the U.S. and prevalent throughout the world. It is also referred to as major depressive disorder or clinical depression. This extremely debilitating mental illness consists of repeated and ongoing sadness, loss of interest or excitement in activities, decreased appetite and energy, and inability to concentrate. People with depression are sometimes so fatigued that they don’t get out of bed all day, yet have a hard time falling asleep at night. Depression can cause insomnia because melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep, is derived from serotonin, which is depleted in a depressed person’s brain.
As with anxiety, everyone experiences feelings of sadness from time to time. But with depression, bouts of unhappy feelings may happen for no apparent reason. Clinical depression may be diagnosed if symptoms of depression occur without a trigger and are affecting a person’s ability to function every day. The causes of depression remain unknown. Scientists believe it is related to reduced activity of one or more monoamine neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. This is known as the monoamine hypothesis. Current medication-based treatments for depression are based on this hypothesis. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), tricyclics, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are commonly prescribed antidepressants. These theoretically work to increase the depleted levels of these neurotransmitters in depressed people. In addition to medications, cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective treatment. In extreme cases, electroconvulsive therapy has been beneficial when no other methods have worked.
Unfortunately, depression can lead to self-harm, feelings of worthlessness and even suicidal thoughts. If you, a friend or loved one has suicidal thoughts or feels like self-harming in any way, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

I recently received a World’s Smallest GI Joe vs. Cobra Micro Action Figures "Duke" figure from Knick Knack Toy Shack. The mini figure is really cool and great for your collection. Knick Knack Toy Shack was fast on delivery and will definitely order from them again.
I really enjoy all my items, shop vac works great, etch a sketch is awesome, my Mr potato head is so cool, I like how the magic 8ball really works and my glow worm is the excatly like the big one I got in the 90's
The cuteness of this kitty will creep up on you like a curious spider. But don't be afraid of the hour glass on her back. It is there to make her stand out more in a dark room. This eight-legged cat is great for Halloween as she spins her web of intrigue with her unique design. Of course, for the goth-minded, she is a year round favorite.
I ran across this site and I am so glad I did. The story of this business is awesome. I have been very impressed with the quality and quick turn around on products ordered. I absolutely love this site and will use it for many things I feel sure

I ordered several cats vs pickles from Knick Knack Toy Shack. They are so cute + needed specific ones to complete my collection for my grandkids. I felt the prices were ok, especially because I was getting the exact ones I needed. No random choices. The were delivered very quickly + was very satisfied with the whole transaction. I would not hesitate to order again
Love the quality and the color. Great product selection and super fast shipping, too. But be warned, these individual CVP toys come unwrapped. There's no case or packaging, so if you plan on collecting them like the Beanie Baby days, you'll need something to preserve them.
