How can you help someone who is depressed?

●  
Help him or her to get appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

●  Encourage the person to stay in treatment until the symptoms are resolved.

●  
If no improvement, help the person to evaluate and seek different treatment.

●  
If necessary, make an appointment for the person with a qualified professional and accompany them to their appointment.

●  
Offer emotional support, understanding, patience, affection, and encouragement.

●  
Listen to the person from your heart–listen fully, without distraction, without judgment and without criticism.

●  
Take any remarks about suicide seriously and report them to the person’s therapist or a suicide hotline.

●  
Do not expect the depressed person to "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" and to "snap out of it."

●  
Continue to reassure the person that with time and help, they will feel better.

Is depression inherited?

Some people may inherit a tendency toward depression say experts. A recent study found that people who suffer from depression have fewer cells in a certain part of the brain.

Studies indicate that people who have a family member who has been or is seriously depressed have a 1 in 4 chance of having an episode of depression in their lifetimes versus a 1 in 14 chance for the general population.

Just because you might be vulnerable to suffering from depression does not mean that you’re doomed. Even if you do experience some depression in your lifetime, you can find many ways to overcome it.

There are numerous tools, and widespread knowledge at your disposal, that your family of origin may never have had. You are in a much better position to control your life.

Can depression be temporary?

Some depression may be more of the feeling sad or blues variety, otherwise known as mild depression. The effects may be enough to make you feel down, however, they may not totally fit the criteria of clinically diagnosed major depression.

Some causes may include:

●  life changes
●  relationship problems
●  financial difficulties
●  bereavement
●  social isolation
●  physical illness
●  substance abuse

If the symptoms begin within two months of a stressful situation, and they don't create serious social or occupational impairment, and they clear up within two to six months, then you may have experienced situational or circumstantial depression.

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)?

Seasonal changes caused by lack of sunlight in the winter can also trigger depression. This can usually be helped with full spectrum lighting in your home and your work area.

Is there more than one type of depression?

●  Major Depression

●  Dysthymia

●  Bipolar formerly called manic-depressive (manic: excessive mental and physical activity--elevation of mood††

DYSTHYMIC DISORDER is characterized by at least two years of depressed mood for more days than not, accompanied by additional depressive symptoms that do not meet criteria for a Major Depressive Episode.

Women are two to three times more likely to develop Dysthymic Disorder than are men.

Additional symptoms must include two or more of the following:

●  poor appetite or overeating
●  insomnia or hypersomnia
●  low energy or fatigue
●  low self-esteem
●  poor concentration
●  difficulty making decisions
●  feelings of hopelessness

††BIPOLAR I DISORDER is characterized by one or more Manic or Mixed Episodes, usually accompanied by Major Depressive Episodes.

BIPOLAR II DISORDER is characterized by one or more Major Depressive Episodes accompanied by at least one Hypomanic Episode.

Not everyone who is depressed or bipolar experiences every symptom. Some people experience a few symptoms, some many. Severity of symptoms can also vary from one person to another.

Mania:

●  inappropriate elation
●  excessive irritability
●  serious insomnia
●  grandiose notions
●  increased talking
●  disconnected and racing thoughts
●  increased sexual desire
●  poor judgment
●  inappropriate social behavior

MOOD DISORDER DUE TO A GENERAL MEDICAL CONDITION. This depression is the result of a medical condition.

SUBSTANCE-INDUCED MOOD DISORDER. This  depression is the result of drug or other substance abuse, a prescribed medication, another treatment for depression, or toxin exposure.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, psychotherapy only has a 20% success rate.

I have a 97% success rate, and over 37 years experience.


I honor and respect your race, religion, culture, and way of life including senior citizens and those with disabilities.

I also welcome adults in consensual, sane and safe, alternative sexual and other creative lifestyle choices.
