While depression is a common mental health concern, it can arise from many different causes, including genetics, environmental factors, stressors, and lifestyle habits.
If you have a family history of depression, your risk of developing the condition also increases. Depression can also occur alongside other conditions, such as anxiety and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Traumatic or life-changing events can also cause depression in some people.
Every person experiences depression a bit differently, but in general, the condition causes people to experience symptoms that last for weeks.
Some indications you may have depression:
If you have any of the symptoms above, you should seek professional help as depression may worsen and lead to serious health consequences if left untreated.
Depression support focuses on your whole-person health, taking into account all of the factors that may cause depression symptoms. Everyone experiences depression in their own way and only comprehensive care can address all of the problems that contribute to symptoms.
Counseling is one type of depression support that can help you to discuss your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. In some cases, medications are combined with counseling to maximize the benefits of treatment.
