Depression – What is It?
Depression is a serious mood disorder that affects your thoughts, feelings and behavior. You may feel sad or irritable for weeks or months at a time. You may lose interest in things you usually like to do and have trouble sleeping. You might think about suicide or try to hurt yourself. If you have depression, you need treatment. It can be treated with medicine or counseling (psychotherapy). Sometimes both are used. Women are more likely to get depressed, although men also can experience it. Depression is very common. Millions of people have it. It is treatable, and most people get better with treatment.
Doctors call depression a disorder, because it is different from feeling down or having the blues. It can last for a long time, and it can make life very difficult. Depression can be a result of a lot of things, including problems at home or work, loss of a job, a car accident or the death of someone close to you. It can also be caused by a medical problem, such as thyroid problems, menopause or an infection. Depression can also be caused by certain genes, or by changes in the brain.
Psychiatrists today generally look at depression as a complex disorder most likely triggered by overlapping biological, psychological and social (also called environmental) factors. Scientists think that some depression is genetic, and some may be caused by changes in the body’s balance of hormones. Many studies link depression to neurotransmitters, which are naturally occurring chemicals that pass signals between nerve cells. These chemicals are involved in brain circuits that help maintain mood stability. There is still a lot we don’t know about depression, but we do know that it can be treated and that you can recover.
Psychotherapy (also known as talk therapy) is a type of treatment that can help you change unhealthy emotions, beliefs and behaviors. There are several types of psychotherapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy. Many people get better after a short period of psychotherapy, but others need months or years of therapy. There are also medicines that can change the way your brain works and decrease symptoms of depression. There are many different types of antidepressants. Each one acts on a different group of neurotransmitters.
If you are interested in taking part in a clinical trial to find out if new treatments will help, talk to your health care provider. Clinical trials are research studies that help doctors discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases and conditions, including depression. NIMH conducts clinical trials, and other organizations around the country do the same. You can find out about trials by asking your health care provider, a mental health professional or a faith leader. Clinical trials give you an opportunity to try new treatment methods and help find better treatments for future generations. If you decide to take part in a clinical trial, you will be told the risks and benefits.
