Depression

Depression affects many people. Feelings of worthlessness, despair, and sadness overwhelm daily life. People prone to anxiety are more likely to be affected by depression. Emotional despair lasting longer than a few weeks could mean that treating depression is paramount to return to normal functioning.

Common Symptoms of Depression

• sense of emptiness
• troubles sleeping
• suicidal thoughts
• fatigue
• hopelessness
• poor performance at work or school

Causes

Sometimes, depression can occur during periods of grief or stressful life changes, such as divorce, giving birth, or other periods of instability. Hormonal imbalance, genetic predisposition, and environmental factors can also all play a role in causing depression.

Treatment

Necessary day-to-day activities that seem impossible due to loss of interest or incredible fatigue severely impact people struggling with depression. Treatment for depression can help counteract feelings of loneliness and helplessness, and medication for depression can certainly help these symptoms. Therapy, however, can provide a skillset specialized in dealing with depression that cannot be reached by antidepressants alone. Triggers that worsen depression can be recognized, and a positive outlook can be reached.
