What is Depression?

Depression is a disorder that involves the body, mood and thoughts, and can affect the way you feel about yourself, the way you eat and sleep, and the way you think about things. Between 8-12% of the population will experience depression. Mixed anxiety depression is the most common mental disorder in Britain, with almost 9% of people meeting criteria for diagnosis.

It is quite normal for most people to feel a little down or pessimistic from time to time. However depression is more than just a passing mood, so consider how frequently it happens, how severe is it when it happens, and how long it last each time. It is important to realise that depression is not a sign of weakness and that it is not easy for the depressed person to just ‘pull themselves together’ and get better by themselves. Without any form of treatment the symptoms of depression can often go on for months or years.


Symptoms of Depression

Depression may affect both the mind and body, so symptoms fall into three main categories, physical, behavioural and emotional.

This list below is not complete, and most people with depression will not experience all of these symptoms. The symptoms, or intensity of the symptoms may also vary over time.

Some Common Signs of Depression may include:

Persistant Sadness Anxiousness ‘Empty’ mood
Sense of hopelessnesss Pessimism Feelings of Guilt
Sense of worthlessness Sense of helplessness Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed
Decreased energy Feeling fatigued Poor concentration
Poor memory Difficulty making decisions Insomnia
Change in appetite Weight loss or gain Thoughts of death, suicide
Restlessness Irritability Inexplicable Aches and pains
Inappropriate behaviour Digestive disorders Headaches
Racing thoughts Poor judgement Feeling Defeated

PLEASE NOTE: If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms then get them checked out by a doctor, psychiatrist or clinical psychologist right away.


The Depression Treatment in Manchester

The treatment for depression is available at the Manchester practice and is highly tailored to each persons requirements, so the exact form of treatment and number of sessions will vary from person to person. However for specific causes, improvements can be made in as little as 8 to 12 sessions of short-term therapy, for more deep rooted, chronic or very complex depression, mid to long-term psychotherapy and counselling will usually be a better choice.
