Everybody gets in a low mood from time to time. Stress, worry and painful life experiences can leave you feeling down and vulnerable. While these feelings are a perfectly natural response to difficult circumstances, major depression is a far more serious condition.

You may have read some statistics about depression. Approximately a million Australians battle with this disorder every year and one in five will be afflicted during their lifetime. And yet no amount of data can adequately capture or convey the personal pain and suffering experienced in depression. It is far more than simply feeling sad- it can rob you of your energy, your health, your desire to enjoy life, your self-esteem and your ability to see any hope for the future.

Causes and Symptoms of Depression

It is a serious medical condition produced by chemical imbalances in the brain. Often this mental illness is brought on by loss or other traumatic events. It can be a brief phase in someone’s life, or it can lead to prolonged personal unhappiness, sometimes even to self-harm or long-term disability. Some forms of depression, such as dysthymia, are chronic by definition, lasting as long as two years or more. Whatever form it takes, it can have major effects on your emotions, relationships, work, physical health, mental health and wellbeing.

Here are some of the symptoms and causes of depression:

Causes:

    • Prolonged stress at work or home
    • Long-term illness or health issues
    • Bereavement or loss
    • Abuse
    • Stress from major life changes
    • Personal conflicts
    • Lack of fulfillment at work or home
    • Isolation or loneliness
    • Substance abuse
    • Traumatic experiences in childhood leading to a negative way of seeing yourself and the world

Symptoms:

    • Depressed mood
    • Diminished interest or pleasure in activities
    • Significant decrease or increase in weight
    • Insomnia or hypersomnia (inability to sleep)
    • Motor agitation
    • Motor retardation (slowing of movement)
    • Fatigue or loss of energy
    • Poor physical health and increased susceptibility to illness
    • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt
    • Diminished ability to concentrate or think
    • Recurrent thoughts of death and suicidal thinking or behavior

 

Depression can present itself in many ways. It can mimic other medical conditions, often appearing associated with fatigue, feeling stressed, headaches, poor work and academic performance, relationship difficulties or alcohol and drug problems. Sometimes there is no obvious reason for the onset of depression.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it can be a lonely and difficult place to be. But help is available and we can help you find the cure you need to improve your mental health.
