Depression Treatments and Symptoms
Depression Treatments and Symptoms
There are many ways to combat depression, from medical treatments to psychological counseling. In addition to therapy sessions, a variety of organizations provide resources and education. The National Alliance on Mental Illness and the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance both offer resources to help people overcome depression. Religious and employee assistance programs may also have mental health resources. If you are feeling depressed, try to stay social and get out of your home as much as possible. Joining a support group can help you meet others facing similar problems and learn how to deal with them.
Psychiatrists can recommend several types of therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, for example, focuses on changing negative thinking and behavior patterns. Couples and family therapy work to address issues together that may be contributing to depression. Problem solving therapy helps individuals and couples identify practical solutions. These treatments may include discussing how to get a new job or improve a relationship. However, they may not be effective for every person with depression.
Depression is a complex illness with many causes. A person’s genetics may increase the risk of developing depression. A major life event or stress can trigger a depressive episode, which may lead to more dysfunction. Ultimately, the depression can affect a person’s physical health as well. In addition, it may be associated with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or poor self-esteem. While there are no specific genetics that cause depression, many factors contribute to the symptoms.
A teen who is suffering from depression is likely to have trouble in school, be restless, and get into trouble. They may exhibit low self-esteem, lack of motivation, or have trouble with social interaction. Other underlying disorders, such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, eating disorders, and anxiety, can also contribute to the problem. Males with depression tend to drink excessively, engage in risk-taking activities, and have trouble adjusting to new cultures.
Psychotherapy is one of the most popular treatments for depression. It involves learning new coping skills and changing negative thinking patterns to aid your recovery. Most psychotherapy is conducted by a licensed mental health professional in one-on-one or group settings. There are several types of psychotherapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy, and older forms that may help some people with depression. It is important to remember that both SSRIs and SNRIs have side effects and can be dangerous when taken in high doses.
Many antidepressants are available over-the-counter or through your doctor. These drugs are FDA-approved, but they are not without risks. Your healthcare provider will explain any side effects before prescribing any medication for you. The best way to determine which antidepressants will work for you is to talk with your doctor. They may be the right choice for you if they are the most effective. If you’re not satisfied with the results of the first treatment, your doctor may prescribe another type.
Another type of depression is called seasonal affective disorder. Symptoms of seasonal affective disorder can occur when fewer hours of sunlight are available during certain months of the year. In contrast, melancholic depression is a more serious form of depression, with complete loss of enjoyment in all activities. Although major depression symptoms vary from person to person, they must be present for at least two weeks to qualify as major depression. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may be suffering from major depression.
