Let Us Help You With Your Depression

Feeling depressed from time to time is a normal human emotion – you might feel depressed for not achieving that weekly quota or for not being promoted for work. It’s just your reaction whenever things don’t go the way you expected it. You can’t just win everything in life, as they say.

However, if these small instances bring a feeling of hopelessness that lasts for weeks, take necessary precaution as this can signal a serious depressive disorder.

Depression, like other kinds of illnesses, needs medical attention. If left untreated, it can cause drastic changes in your life—your behaviour, thinking patterns, and overall outlook. Because of this don’t allow yourself to stay sad for this long, seek professional help. We’re here for you.

What are the Signs of Depression?

Spotting the signs of a depressive disorder is tricky. Some signs may not be obvious to you, while some are acquired due to the prolonged feeling of extreme grief. To help you understand your situation, here are some common symptoms of depression:

  • You feel depressed most of the day, especially in the morning without any apparent reason.
  • You feel tired, or you lack the energy to do anything.
  • You feel worthless or guilty all the time.
  • You have a hard time sleeping, or you sleep too much.
  • You think suicide is the easiest escape to your problems.
  • You’re unfocused or unable to remember minor details.
  • You’ve lost or gained weight.

Assess yourself and think if you possess one or two of these behaviours. If you do, seek professional help immediately. Depression is best diagnosed as early as possible, to allow any necessary interventions to work more effectively.

What are the Treatments for Depression?

Depression is curable. There are a lot of treatments available such as:

  • Psychological Treatments;
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
  • Inter-personal Therapy (IPT)
  • Behavior Therapy
  • Hypnosis
