Treatment For Depression

What is it?

What are the types of Depression?

Psychologists have given fancy names to the different types of anxiety, but they are all different versions of the same thing…fear of possible bad or threatening experiences happening in the future.  Here are some of the more common ones:

 

Depression is a very common problem that can show up in your life in a variety of ways.

 

Acute depression, or major depression, is when you find yourself in a profound sadness most of the time, and have trouble enjoying things that used to bring you pleasure. You might feel tired or fatigued much of the time, and have trouble making decisions. Depressive episodes tend to last two weeks or less.

 

Chronic depression, or persistent depressive disorder, is when you have a lower grade depression that lasts longer than two weeks.  It can show up as low mood, irritability, and sadness.

 

One can also become depressed due to life events such as the loss of a loved one, a break up, health reasons, or aspects other of grief.

 

If you are suffering from one of the above, then Straight Up Treatment can help.
