Major depression or Clinical Depression is a condition that causes a person to feel depressed, hopeless and sad for a prolonged period. The symptoms of clinical depression can vary from the everyday sadness and lows that everyone experiences. This condition is often caused by stress or a crisis. These episodes of depression can be caused by loss of a loved-one, emotional or physical abuse, or side effects of other medical conditions such as unregulated thyroid levels. Major depression can range from mild, brief episodes to long-lasting episodes. Major depression can make it difficult for individuals to perform daily activities such as eating, sleeping, sleeping, socializing, going on work trips, or doing chores. For those who have a severe depressive disorder, it may be difficult to perform the simple tasks that are taken for granted.
Anyone can experience clinical depression, even children. It is important for parents to be aware of the symptoms and to help young children with their mental health issues. A diagnosis of illness can be made by any physical manifestations, and mental health issues should not be ignored. Children are often assumed to be healthy and free of stress and anxiety, which is not true. According to a study, the world is experiencing rising levels of anxiety and depression that affects up to 44%.
Depression can cause sadness, hopelessness, and tearfulness. You should also be aware of anger, irritability, and outbursts about small things. Teenagers and children may lose interest in hobbies or other activities that they once enjoyed. You may also notice irregular sleeping patterns, such as insomnia or over-sleeping. Other symptoms include loss or appetite, agitation, restlessness, guilt, self-blame, and suicidal thoughts. Clinical depression is more common in women than it is in men. This risk increases during puberty, menstruation and pregnancy. This risk is higher for single parents and those who care for aging parents. But, men with clinical depression are often overlooked and not reported. It is especially important to recognize that mental illness can also affect men, even in some societies.
Major depression, like other mental disorders, is difficult to diagnose because it doesn’t have any physical or measurable symptoms. It is not possible for doctors to run X-rays and blood tests to diagnose it. As major depression can run in the family, a medical practitioner will ask the patient many questions about their medical history. The doctor will match the symptoms to those that are commonly associated with clinical depression. To distinguish between clinical depression and temporary sadness, he may ask about the duration of symptoms.
Clinical depression can be treated easily. Psychotherapy or talk therapy is the most popular treatment. This involves sessions with a therapist to discuss difficult topics in the patient’s lives that may be triggering their depression. The treatment often includes anti-depressant medication. This medication targets abnormal chemical activity in patients who have clinical depression. These medications increase the brain’s serotonin level. Low levels of serotonin have been associated with depression. The body makes serotonin, a chemical compound with multiple functions. However, it is most well-known for its contribution to happiness and good mood.
It is sad that a treatable condition can be so stigmatized. It is crucial to end the stigma surrounding mental illness so that people in society don’t suffer unnecessary, especially for children. While there are many qualified psychiatrists for children and adults in some countries, others have significant gaps in this field. Social stigma is the only obstacle to tackling rising levels of depression in the world.
