Getting Treatment For Depression
Depression is a common, serious mental health condition that can cause symptoms such as sadness, fatigue, difficulty sleeping and poor concentration. It can also interfere with daily life and lead to a loss of interest in the activities that you once enjoyed. Getting treatment for depression can help you feel better and live a more satisfying life.
The CDC estimates that around 11% of physicians office visits and 3% of emergency department visits note depression on medical records. It is also a leading cause of disability.
Major depressive disorder is the most common type of depression. It is characterized by two or more weeks of persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness that have no obvious cause. It may include a combination of other symptoms such as sleep problems, appetite changes and feeling worthless.
Psychotherapy, medication and lifestyle changes can help you manage your depression. A doctor may recommend talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
Medication can help treat symptoms of depression by changing the brain’s chemistry. Antidepressants are available by prescription and can work well for some people. You’ll need to try a few different medications before finding the one that works best for you. If you take any antidepressants, be sure to talk to your doctor about possible side effects or other problems.
Other treatment options for depression include transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and vagus nerve stimulation (VNS). These treatments use a coil to send electrical pulses to certain parts of your brain that may trigger your depression. They can be done as an outpatient, or in a hospital or residential facility.
The sooner you get help for your depression, the more likely it is that you’ll recover. A good treatment plan will help you manage your depression and prevent it from coming back.
Depression can be triggered by a variety of things, including stressful events and a family history of the disease. It can also be triggered by a chemical imbalance in your brain or a lack of vitamin D.
Symptoms of depression can be so severe that they interfere with a person’s ability to function, work or go to school. They can also cause suicidal thoughts and acts.
Many people with depression have a family history of it or experience other factors that increase their risk of depression, such as social or economic disadvantages. If a loved one has depression, it’s important to seek help and support.
Treatment is a process that can last months or years. There’s no cure for depression, but many effective treatments are available. These may include talking therapy with a mental health professional, medications or medication-free approaches such as lifestyle changes and exercise.
You can also talk to your friends or a loved one. A minister or spiritual leader is another good place to turn for help. A therapist or counselor can help you find ways to cope with the emotional impact of depression and build a healthy support network.
