Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in America. It has been reported that about 9.5 million Americans suffer from some depression almost every six months. If you’ve been suffering from mild or severe depression on a recurring basis you need to learn more and learn it fast!
Listen very carefully and we will tell you how you can pinpoint the warning signs and nip the problem in the bud before it becomes a life-threatening condition.
First things first!
What is depression? The upside definition is a state of mind which results in a serious, long-term lowering of enjoyment of life or inability to visualize a happy future.
On a more serious note, depression is a period of feeling “the blues” which lasts longer than several weeks and may include thoughts of self-inflicted injury or suicide.
Pretty scary, isn’t it?
Just tune in to your evening news and you will see the results of depression. Parents and family members who didn’t have a suspicion that their loved one suffered from depression, therefore they missed the tell-tale early signs of detection.
This appears to be true of our youth. It seems like not a day goes by that we don’t learn of another teen or even pre-teen, commit a violent act that stemmed from a state of severe depression.
How is a parent to know? And if you ARE fortunate to detect the depression, what is your next step? This is extremely important when it comes to our children.
Because some of the symptoms are so illusive, they can be easily overlooked in our busy day to day activities. We may push the thoughts to the back of our minds and decide to have that discussion “tomorrow.” Sadly, sometimes “tomorrow” just does not come.
Anyone can have it!
Depression has no boundaries. Rich, poor, fat, thin, young or old depression does not discriminate!
