Helping You Beat Depression

Depression is a serious condition that can start suddenly but turn into a life long struggle that can be hard to overcome.

When depression starts to occur you may feel an overwhelming sadness, a loss in interest in the activities you once loved, and in very severe cases suicidal tendencies.

Depression is a very serious condition and shouldn’t be dismissed. Did you know the leading cause of suicide is due to depression?

Suicide isn’t the only option you have. There is help available that can get you through this tough time in your life. You just need extra support.

Common Signs of Depression to Watch Out For

  • Persistently feeling anxious, sad or empty inside.
  • Attempts or thoughts of suicide.
  • Difficulty concentrating, making decisions and remembering details.
  • Low energy levels and fatigue with lack of motivation.
  • Feeling irritable and restless in your everyday life.
  • A lack of interest in the things you once loved such as hobbies and activities.
  • Lack of a regular sleep pattern and insomnia.
  • Feelings of worthlessness, helplessness, guilt or hopelessness.

Your Approach to Getting Better

Irregular sleep patterns, an overwhelming sadness, and lack of interest in the things you once loved are all common symptoms of depression.

Depression doesn’t have to be your life. You can overcome it and take back control. There are some steps to help you on the road to recovery.

The first step is being committed to making a change and understanding you do have a serious problem.

The next step is telling your loved ones that you have depression and that you need their support now more than ever.

The final step is reaching out and being brave by asking for help and support from a professional psychologist.

Overcoming depression is possible. You just need the right support and help to turn your life around. You don’t have to feel sad for one more day.

How Does Depression Start?

Depression generally starts for different reasons and exposure to certain events. Some things that can cause depression include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Being diagnosed with a life threatening and terminal illness.
