Depression is a psychological disorder that can have a major effect not only on the person suffering with the condition, but also on his or her family and friends. Depending on the circumstances, depression is considered a personal injury.

If you know someone sufering from such a personal injury in South Dakota, there are steps you can take to provide love and support. Even if your loved one has become closed off and secluded, don’t ignore him or her. Depression, if left untreated, can lead to suicide.
