Approximately 6.7% Americans are affected by major depression annually. This figure depicts that depression and mental health is a vital issue in America. Depression doesn’t discriminate, and it can affect any person at any given age, but it affects most adult women. The month of May is for Mental Health Awareness, and Neurocore is determined to show the real face of depression.
A fraction of the people is affected by depression never seek medical attention. Research has proven that this is due to the victimization involved with depression and several mental health conditions. Moreover, most people don’t understand that depression is a treatable condition and people who have it are not pretending. Given this Neurocore has compiled a comprehensive list that shows that depression is a permanent condition that may have a huge blow to any individual’s life.
There are numerous forms of depression. They include Postpartum Depression, Major Depression, Persistent Depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder. Postpartum Depression occurs soon after childbirth and may persist for two weeks to even a year. Major Depressive Disorder is an episode of distressing feelings that last daily for two weeks. Persistent Depressive Disorder is a sense of having painful feelings that continue every day for two years. Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression where distressing feelings occur at winter time or periods of time when sunlight is minimal.
There is research that says that Depression has a genetic link and people who have had a family history are likely to suffer. Nevertheless, other issues that might lead to depression include individuals who have gone through abuse and stressful life episodes. Other factors are money problems, unemployment or death of a close person. The signs and symptoms of depression include immense sadness, feeling numb and empty inside. Other individuals who have depression may have eating and sleep problems, lack of interest in anything, fatigue and much more.
