Let’s Talk Depression

Children with depressed grandparents or biological parents have higher chances of major depressive disorder(MDD). The offspring of a parent suffering with depression has higher probabilities of their kids having disruptive syndrome, substance addiction, suicidal signs and poorer functioning. Generally, at the age of eight to ten years, children start to show the symptoms that might include strange change in behaviour, staying aloof, facing trouble in having compatibility with the peers etc. Without any delay we should contact a Mental Health Expert and seek their advice as it might not require even medicine and just a change in lifestyle, but, ‘intervention is surely required’.

Likewise, IT professionals or time-pressed professionals have an over stressed job. The very much nature of their job is leading to rise in the number of patients suffering from depression. Job-related strain, career anxiety, eagerness of faster growth or any other stress disorder needs to be timely managed. Nature walk, sleep and laughter therapy, yoga, self-relaxing techniques and a consultation with Psychiatrist really helps and prevents its deterioration.

Suicide is the second-leading cause of death in 15 to 24 year olds in the world. There’s been a steep climb in rates of major depression in adolescents. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, eating disorders, and substance abuse are most typical for this age group.

Also, hormonal contraception, including birth control pills or implants, may increase a woman‘s odds of depression.

Somebody suffering from depression needs love and  care but generally gets preconception and discrimination instead. Let’s gather together and fight this devastating mental illness and have a healthy long and beautiful life.
