Depression Is One of the Most Treatable Mental Disorders


Depression Is One of the Most Treatable Mental Disorders

The field of descriptive psychiatry employs the DSM to describe various types of mental illness, including depression. It has been suggested that depression may be a social construct, rather than a physical illness. American archetypal psychologist James Hillman argues that depression is healthy for the soul, because it provides a sense of refuge and limitation, as well as a sense of weight and gravity. Further, Hillman argues that the therapeutic attempt to treat depression is harmful to the affected person, as it demonizes a state of being that is in fact an innate part of all human beings.

Genetics plays a role in depression, with studies linking some genes to a greater risk of developing the condition. A study involving 2 million people identified 269 genes that were associated with depression. However, researchers stress that genetics do not write our destiny; they may only increase our risk, and other factors can trigger symptoms. It is still difficult to identify exactly which genes cause depression. Some of genes, however, have been linked to physical illnesses and other psychological conditions.

Fortunately, depression is one of the most treatable mental disorders. About 80% to 90% of people treated successfully and experience relief from the symptoms of depression. A healthcare professional will conduct a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation that includes a physical exam and an interview with the patient. Blood tests are sometimes performed to rule out other medical conditions that may be contributing to depression-like symptoms. The health professional will also explore the specific symptoms a person may be experiencing and examine medical history, cultural factors, and environmental factors.

Depression affects anyone, regardless of gender, age, or ethnic background. However, it tends to affect women more than men. Women often exhibit more ruminating, which is the process of thinking over one’s life. This behavior may include negative self-talk, sudden crying spells, or feelings of guilt. Other symptoms of depression include an eating disorder, anxiety disorder, or obsessive-compulsive behaviors. And men are more likely to exhibit signs of irritability, anger, or escapist behavior.

Psychotherapy can also be an effective treatment for depression. Behavioral activation, stress management, problem-solving techniques, and social support are among the many methods described in the WHO manuals. Psychotherapy can take place in a one-on-one setting or with a group. It may last a few weeks or several months, but in most cases, a person with depression will begin to improve after about 10 to 15 sessions. A comprehensive program can help prevent depression and increase quality of life.

Depression can lead to significant changes in a person’s life, including physical and emotional ailments. symptoms may interfere with daily activities, such as sleeping and concentrating. The person may also experience aches and pains, feel sad or worthless, or experience thoughts of suicide or self-harm. While symptoms are common to people suffering from depression, the severity of these changes varies. If they persist, it is important to seek mental health care help as soon as possible.
