“The only thing more exhausting than being depressed is pretending that you’re not.”
A mood disorder of the person is depressed. It may be a feeling of anger, sadness or anger. Depression affects daily activities, loss of time, lower productivity, ruin relationships and may lead to health complications. Many sad events are occurring in everyone’s life. Feeling depressed for some time is normal as the mind needs time to forget the unfortunate incident. But if there is feeling down every day, then it is depression, and it is time to meet us. If it is not treated at the proper time, it may lead to the worst conditions. Medication and counselling are vital for getting out of this condition.
Living Through Depression
What Is Depression ?
There are both biological and precise causes of depression. Some of the reasons are:
- Childhood Trauma: The body and brain react easily for stress and fear conditions. Past sexual, physical and emotional abuse may turn to clinical depression in the latter part of life.
- Family history: If you already have a person with depression in the family, there are more chances of you developing this disorder.
- Body Health: Some health conditions of your body may put you to higher risk
- Brain development: If the frontal lobe of the brain is less active, there are more chances to get depressed.
- Alcohol or drug abuse may get depression
- Events: Getting a new job, moving to a new place, losing a job, getting married, getting divorced or retiring may lead to depression.
- Social problems: Social isolation from the family or social group may become a primary reason for depression.
- Major Illness: When your body contacts a significant illness, the mental condition may deviate from causing medical depression.
- Conflicts: Personal tiffs with close friends and family members may lead to depression.
- Death: Loss of a loved one may be a definite cause for getting depressed.
Many of the diseases like asthma, arthritis, cancer, diabetes and obesity get worse due to depression.
When you feel a constant state of sadness in your mind, then it is depression. Many other symptoms affect your body and mind. Symptoms may be continuous or may come and go. Men, women and children experience these symptoms in different ways.

Why My Fit Brain
Depression is treatable though it is in a severe form. The two most common methods followed to treat depressions are counselling and medication. Sometimes both may be combined according to the condition of the patient. Here are some of the ways to treat depression:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Here, the patient cannot imagine himself to be at the top. He always thinks he is low and cannot come out of that feeling quickly. We counsel and help the patient to come out of the negative thoughts. We encourage positive thoughts, and there are good results out of it.
Counseling for Depression
There may be a lot of reasons for depression. We identify those reasons and try to get the patient to come out of fear. Some traumas may take a long time to be forgotten. We give counseling at regular intervals to strengthen the mind.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
Some patients cannot concentrate on counseling and would have developed wrong breathing patterns due to tension. Meditation and breathing exercises with counseling would help the patient to recover quickly.
Due to depression, a lot of relationships would have been destroyed. The talking pattern will change due to depression. Our counseling includes some interpersonal therapy to talk with people and thus improve the way of speaking.
A lot of inner feelings would affect the outer behaviour of a person. With our counseling, the thought pattern is changed, and thus the behaviour will change gradually.
Here, we bring together many people in depression and allow them to discuss their problems. It may help in treating many patients as they come to know about the people and understand themselves more.
Sometimes only medication may not be enough to tame the mind. Counseling is also required regularly to get out the mind from all the confusion. Talking to a person with love and affection is the best counseling we give. With our mental health experts, there is a therapeutic relationship. This relationship provides a safe environment. The thoughts, behavioural patterns and feelings together contribute to the depression symptoms.
Our counseling helps in learning more skills and techniques to cope with or manage the symptoms. For moderate depression, we need at least six months or a bit less of short term counseling. A referral from a doctor would be enough for getting our benefits of counseling. Our patients feel comfortable with us and trust us to open up their bonded feelings.
We have experienced and reputed medical experts handling depression patients. They use unique techniques to cure each patient. Feel comfortable to meet us and get out of the haunting feeling of “Depression.”
