Depression is one of the most commonly occurring psychological problems in the populace at large. If not treated properly, it can lead to social isolation and loss of enjoyment of life or favourite activities.

Clinical Depression is a mood disorder which is similar to sadness. It interferes with one’s thinking, behavior and physical functioning. It is long-lasting. The depth of this state affects the whole body, reducing one’s performance and ability to defend oneself generally.

Depression is not just a response to life's unpleasantness, although it may emerge following a life event or incident; it is much deeper and more complex than regular sadness. It is certainly not a sign of personality weakness or laziness.

How to recognize Depression?

  • Do you feel fatigued, slowed down or tense and restless?
  • Do you have problems with insomnia or are you sleeping more often / longer than before?
  • Have you recently had a marked increase or decrease in appetite?
  • Have you lost your sense of direction in life?
  • Do you have persistent negative thoughts about yourself or your surroundings?
  • Do you suffer from a persistent bad mood?
  • Do you feel less efficient than usual in your work or everyday activities?
  • Do you suffer from persistent symptoms of an illness with no obvious cause, such as headaches or indigestion?

If you have answered some of these questions in the affirmative, you may be experiencing clinical depression. For further assessment, it is advisable to seek professional help.

Did you know?

There are a number of common misconceptions about depression. A person in such a state may be advised by others to “pull it together” or “shake it off”, which, of course, is not good advice. Depression can be a very complex illness that does not always have a clear cause or source and was certainly not self-induced. It is important to remember that a person suffering from Depression is not to be blamed. On the contrary! Finding solutions and professional help requires one’s strength and effort; and we are here to help.
