What is depression?

Depression is a common yet serious mental illness that negatively affects how a person feels, thinks, and handles daily activities. It involves a persistent feeling of sadness, loss of interest, and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. Unlike normal mood fluctuations and short-lived emotional responses to daily challenges, depression lasts longer and is more intense, typically impairing a person’s ability to function at work and at home.

Symptoms of depression can vary widely but often include a persistent sad or “empty” mood, feelings of hopelessness or pessimism, irritability, feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities, decreased energy or fatigue, moving or talking more slowly, difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions, sleep disturbances, appetite or weight changes, thoughts of death, or suicide attempts, and physical symptoms that are not explained by other medical conditions.

Left untreated, depression can lead to fatal outcomes. If you are experiencing depression, don’t hesitate to start walking the path to mental recovery today.

Components of therapy for depression

 

  • Psychotherapy: Among the most effective forms of psychotherapy for depression are cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT). CBT helps patients overcome negative self-thoughts that contribute to depression, while IPT focuses on improving personal relationships that may cause or worsen depression.
  • Lifestyle Adjustments: In addition to therapy, making lifestyle changes can help alleviate symptoms of depression. This can include regular exercise, getting plenty of sleep, maintaining a nutritious diet, and avoiding alcohol and drugs. Social interaction and support from friends and family can also make a significant difference in recovery from depression.

Therapy can help you regain joy.
