What is depression?

Depression is a psychiatric illness that causes low mood, decreased energy levels, and poor sleep. This causes problems with daily activities like schooling and working. As the condition worsens, patients may also think of commiting suicide. Although depression can be caused by stress and trauma, in many cases no clear cause is found.

Symptoms of depression

  • Feeling down

  • My anxiety doesn't go away or keeps coming back repeatedly

  • Difficulty sleeping (Insomnia)

  • Decrease in ambition and motivation

  • Concentration is getting worse

  • Taking less interest or pleasure in activities

  • Stressed over daily life

  • Fears that are sometimes irrational or illogical

Questions your doctor may ask to check for depression

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose depression

  • Have you been feeling depressed recently?

  • Does your anxiety not go away, or keeps coming back again and again?

  • Do you have difficulty sleeping (Insomnia)?

  • Do you feel you have less ambition, motivation or willpower lately?

  • Do you feel you have problems concentrating recently?

Treatment for depression

Treatment is usually through a combination of counseling therapy, and medications (antidepressants). Having a good support network will be helpful, as the recovery process can take months to years.
