What is DEPRESSION & MOOD DISORDERS
Depression and mood disorders are mental health disorders and can be set off by a range of triggers. This includes physical illness, trauma, and experience dating to early childhood, bereavement, family issues, lifestyle, and other life-changing events. Depression should not be confused with sadness, as depression is a prolonged illness that results in a lack of motivation, and a continuous low ‘depressed’ mood, it can be a very debilitating illness.
Symptoms of depression include excessive sleeping or not being able to sleep at all, no energy or motivation, isolating over or under eating, loss of libido, drinking excessive alcohol or taking other drugs, crying a lot, having low self-worth, low self-esteem, feeling like there is no point or purpose in life, feeling empty inside, not wanting to live, having suicidal thoughts. Sometimes people can ‘appear’ happy on the outside and ‘wear’ a mask in front of others, but when alone the above symptoms are present.
Depression, as with all disorders, can affect anyone from any walk of life, cultural or social background, for example, people who seem to have everything going for them and all aspects of their lives on the surface appear perfect, however, within them is a ‘void’ of emptiness and constant sadness is experienced. Depression cannot be helped by being told to ‘cheer up’ it is a medical condition, which requires understanding and empathy and often medical and therapeutic intervention. The good news is depression can be treated, in the short term with prescribed medication and rest may be all that is needed, but for lasting, change depression needs deeper exploration and responds successfully to counselling and psychotherapy. Many ‘symptoms’ can be identified when someone is depressed and recognizing these symptoms sooner means help can be sought sooner.
