Depression is an extremely prevalent issue in Australia, affecting over an estimated one in seven Australians.Depression can affect anyone at any point in their life, regardless of gender, age, or background.
Coping with Depression
It is important to know that depression is an illness like any other, and you are not ‘weak’ or ‘lazy’ for suffering. Recognise that depression manifests differently in everyone, and it is normal to experience a lack of motivation, feelings of sadness, aches and pains, and any number of other symptoms.
Although it can be tempting to withdraw from friends and loved ones when you are dealing with depression as you do not want to bother them, you will likely find that your friends value your company just as much as ever. Let the people in your life know that you are struggling and continue to maintain your social connections.
When depression is affecting you, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Seeking professional support is an important step to take when dealing with depression, as a psychologist can provide evidence-based advice and support to help you overcome your illness.
