Webinar: Understanding Depression

 

One in four Canadians will experience depression at some point in their lives. Depression causes difficulty in academic, social, and academic work along with symptoms like low mood, lack of interest or desire, lack of focus, disturbed sleep and food patterns, hopelessness, guilt, and separation from loved ones. A person’s perception and feelings about herself and others around her are impacted by the mental health disorder known as depression. Major Depressive Disorder and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) are two examples. Additionally, depression is a significant component of bipolar disorders, post-stroke, and traumatic brain injury states that need to be treated.

Some common symptoms of Depression include:

  • Extreme hopelessness and sadness.
  • Refusal to desire to interact or socialize with people.
  • being unable or unwilling to leave the house due to a severe depressive episode or a severe manic episode.
  • Having substance abuse, issues with drugs or alcohol.
  • Suicidal thoughts or behavior.

A mood disorder is a mental illness that affects how a person perceives and feels about themselves and those around them. Bipolar Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Dysthymia (a chronic form of depression), and Depression are a few examples of mood disorders.
