What is Depression

When do you need rehab for depression? The feeling of sadness is a normal emotion that our nervous system senses during times of grief such as experiencing a breakup, losing a family member or a friend, getting fired from a job, and even when watching a sad movie.

Sadness that is associated with a certain life event or particular trigger is known to fade away with time and is usually experienced in waves with feelings of happiness and positivity intermixing with them. Although depression does include sadness, it differs drastically from it in terms of complexity, severity, impact, and duration.

Depression is a mood disorder characterized by a strong and almost constant feeling of sadness or loss. It negatively affects your feelings, actions, thoughts, mood, and can stand in the way of day-to-day activities and daily life. Feelings of worthlessness and loss of severe loss can paralyze a person mentally and emotionally.

Moreover, the prolonged absence of happy chemicals majority damages the brain and the mental state of a person. The recent increase in awareness regarding the disorder has removed many misconceptions about it, yet many people still underestimate the seriousness of depression and the need for depression treatment centers.
