Prolonged depression can be debilitating and take a toll on a person’s well being. Depression is caused by a number of factors, most involving trauma of some type. If left untreated it can seriously impact the quality of – or even ruin – an individual’s life.

What are the effects of depression?

Depression is often expressed as persistent:

  • Unhappiness
  • Hopelessness
  • Loss of interest and/or pleasure in usual activities
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Insomnia or oversleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety

Individuals suffering from depression often lack the motivation to get out of bed. Since depression causes individuals to feel as if they are carrying a burden no one else can comprehend, those suffering from the disorder tend to isolate themselves from their loved ones and trusted friends. While depression is overwhelming, there is hope. Even the most severe and complicated cases are treatable. With proper care, individuals can learn to enjoy life again.
