For some people, finding the medication that works best for them may take several tries. This is when some people consider clinical research studies as a way to further understand their mental illness.
Mental illness can manifest in many different ways. Some people experience a persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood. Others may not feel sad at all, but rather lifeless, empty, and apathetic. Men and women often experience depression differently and may have different ways of coping with the symptoms. Women are more likely to admit to feelings of sadness, worthlessness and/or excessive guilt, whereas men are more likely to acknowledge having fatigue, irritability, loss of interest in activities, and sleep disturbances.
You may be asking yourself, What is clinical research?, or Why would anyone want to participate in a clinical research study? There are many reasons, but namely because people find that other depression “cures” haven’t worked and they are desperate for a better life.
