Individual Depression

Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions in the world. It is more than sadness over a setback or a period of mourning after losing a loved one. It is chronic misery that hinders one’s quality of life. It is rude. It barges its way into life, uninvited, and comes in various shapes and sizes, presenting itself in varying degrees – and it’s all gross. Depression often involves sleep problems, appetite changes, and feelings of guilt or apathy. Some people can’t get out of bed. Others can function like they always do, but things just feel cloudy for no apparent reason. No matter where you feel like you might fall on the spectrum, I can tell you this: therapy may be your answer. Treatment can help individuals with these symptoms. Psychotherapy treatment for depression relies on trust and emotional support. An effective therapist provides people a comfortable, private setting to heal. Together, they examine the causes and potential solutions to their concerns. Therapists help depressed individuals build new ways of thinking and reacting. Therapy can allow people to return to the loved ones and activities that they care about most. Here are some types of depression that professionals often treat: Major Depressive Disorder has symptoms severe enough to impact daily life. It is the most commonly diagnosed form of depression. Seasonal Affective Disorder affects individuals during the colder months of the year. Dysthymia, also called persistent depressive disorder, lasts for at least two years. Its symptoms are milder than those of major depressive disorder.
