Didi Hirsch CEO explains when to seek treatment

Mental experts, including Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services’ CEO Kita S. Curry, Ph.D, recently explained the symptoms of depression to help you determine if you or a loved one may need to be assessed for a depressive disorder.

During these weeks your mind is likely occupied by what Curry describes as “persistent thoughts of failure, hopelessness or shame, and [you’re] thinking in black-and-white.”

Types of thoughts you may experience, according to Curry: “‘No one has ever loved me; it’s always been this way; it will never get better!’ That’s when you know you’re probably depressed.”

This sense of hopelessness can be so pervasive you may find yourself unable to feel joy, even when great things happen.

Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services gets $1M for suicide prevention program

Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services has announced that it was awarded a $1 million grant to expand its suicide prevention program, which provides services to young people under 24 and their families, including crisis intervention, therapy and support, as well as training and education.

The grant came from the Everychild Foundation, made up of more than 200 women who, annually, each donate $5,000 to fund a single $1 million grant to launch or expand a project that eases suffering of local children. It’s the 19th annual grant awarded by the foundation, which has given more than $17 million to help Los Angeles area children and their families in need since 2000.

“With its generous support, the Everychild Foundation has made a commitment to one of the most stigmatized and neglected health risks facing youth and young adults’ suicide,” Dr. Kita Curry, CEO of Didi Hirsch, said. “The suicide rate doubled among 10- to 14-year-olds in the last decade, and it is the second-leading cause of death among 15- to 24-year-olds. Thanks to the Everychild Foundation, in our new Suicide Prevention Center, we will have the room and tools needed to expand services for this vulnerable group.”
