Depression

What it is: Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of loss of interest and sadness. It can affect how you feel, think, and behave, and it can lead to a variety of physical and emotional problems that affect your day to day life, unlike sadness which is a more temporary feeling. 

Symptoms:

  • Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness 
  • Anxiety, agitation or restlessness
  • Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters
  • Tiredness and lack of energy
  • Loss of interest in or pleasure in most or all normal activities
  • Suicidal thoughts or feelings

Causes:

  • Family history of depression
  • Past physical, sexual or emotional abuse
  • Certain medications including isotretinoin, corticosteroids, or interferon-alpha
  • Major events such as getting divorced, losing a job or income, or retiring
  • A death or loss
  • Substance abuse

Treatment:

  • Antidepressant medication
  • Psychotherapy: Also known as talk therapy or counseling, psychotherapy involves working with a therapist to reduce symptoms of anxiety. 
  • Lifestyle changes
    – Regular exercise
    – Social support
    – Eating well-balanced meals
    – Getting enough sleep every night
    – Stress reduction

When to see a doctor: if you feel depressed, make an appointment to see your doctor or mental health professional (which you can do here at TRS Health!). If you’re reluctant to seek treatment, first talk to a friend or loved one, any general healthcare provider, faith leader, or someone you trust. 

When to get emergency help: If you think you might hurt yourself or attempt suicide, call 911 immediately. You can also call a suicide hotline number, 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255), or reach out to a close friend, loved one or someone you trust. If you have a love one who is in danger of suicide or has made a suicide attempt, male sure someone stays with that person. Call 911, and if you can do safely, take the person to the nearest hospital emergency room.
