ABC of Depression
  • If we look at the number of cases and deaths each year, the leading psychological disorder to cause so would be depression.
  • The medical term for it is major depressive disorder.
  • Anyone’s wellbeing, both mentally and physiologically, can be affected by depression.
  • Day to day activities can be hampered due to impact on emotional responses to stimuli.
  • Major mood swings in terms of extreme anger, sorrow, lethargy and hopelessness are often experienced by a depressed person.
  • There are four main types of depression:
  • Clinical Depression: It is an acute form of depression. The person retires from social and personal life. It should be treated immediately.
  • Persistent Depressive Disorder: This form can remain hidden for a long time and comes to light once the person has become completely reclusive from his circle. This can last upto years.
  • Bipolar Mood Disorder: A disorder whose end result may be insanity because the patient alternates between profound sorrow and happiness.
  • Postnatal Depression: Common in women post delivery due to fluctuations in hormones.
Symptoms of Depression: Baited Trap
  • Adults and teenagers can both be affected by depression.
  • The symptoms of depression generally remain the same in both the categories.
  • The impact of depression may not be immediately visible on a person’s behaviour, mental abilities or physical body.
  • However, by observing closely, effects can be noticed before the patient’s condition gets worse.
  • Look out for the below symptoms and side effects of depression:
  • Extreme Emotions: There may be bouts of extreme dramatic and violent outburst of emotions in the form of anger, irritation, sorrow or frustration. Any one mood can prevail for a long time without any reason.

  • Fatigue: Loss of stamina in activities like sex, hobbies etc. The body is tired all the time.
  • Insomnia: Anxiety is a by-product of depression due to which sleep eludes the patient.
  • Weight Loss: The patient is not interested in maintaining a good diet, lifestyle or even good hygiene which naturally leads to a weight loss.
Causes of Depression
  • The exact reasons for depression are unknown
  • But research shows that it may be due to substance abuse or hormonal play or even genetic inclinations.
  • Poor mental health may also be due to some trauma or abnormalities in biological structure.
  • Generally, below are the common causes of depression:
  • Genetic Vulnerability: If a close family member has suffered from depression, the genetic risk may be passed on to you as well.
  • Trauma: A personal emotional trauma like the death of a close person, peer pressure or failure in career may also translate into depression.
  • Result of Chronic Disorders: If a person is suffering from anxiety, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) or hypertension, s/he is most likely to experience bouts of depression.
  • Addiction: Overindulgence in nicotine, tobacco and recreational drugs can play with the hormonal levels of the body. They may induce depression.

  • Psychotherapy: One of the ways to treat depression without the use of chemical medicines. Therapists use various strategies to train the mind to cope with stress and negative thoughts.
  • Light Therapy: For seasonal depression, exposure to white light is done which induces brain activity. However, it may need to be repeated frequently.
