Now we will look at the causes of depression There is a higher risk of depression if there is mental trauma, unprovoked accusations, debates with spouses, poverty, unemployment death of a close person, divorce, love affair, an unfortunate event that happened as a child alcohol or drug addiction Even when this is not the case, depression can be caused by chemical changes in the brain, such as biological factors. Excessive use of mobile and Internet can also lead to depression. Stress, rejection, disappointment, failure, money management are the main causes of stress in everyday life Sometimes there are more stressful situations to deal with Natural disasters such as accidents, life-threatening events, social ostracism, rape, public humiliation, flood-quake-collapse, can increase stress and result in depression And depression is one of the most important causes of mental illness. Depression will lead to more deaths than cancer or heart attack deaths in the world by 2020, says a World Health Organization study. Now let’s look at the symptoms of depression Almost every day, most of the day, feeling depressed, lacked in daily activities, feeling unhappy, loss of appetite and weight loss, insomnia, feeling tired, slowing down of concentration, loss of concentration of thoughts, quick decision making and lack of self-esteem. Feeling guilty, feeling like I’m failing, often men have high alcohol levels, suicidal thoughts or attempts Doing so, these are all symptoms of depression There are two reasons why women are more depressed than men the first is because scientists showed 100 pictures to 12 women and 12 men some of which were shocking, that is, the broken hands of the lesson, and some of the daily dry clothes. Three weeks later, when the pictures were shown again, it seemed that the men who had given the shocking feelings were forgotten, but the women were sure to remember This proved that women are emotional. Another reason is that married women between the ages of 25 and 45 are more depressed than unmarried women of the same age This may be due to the stress of employment and increased family expectations among women. The reason depression is more prevalent in poor women is that poor women do not get any emotional and financial support as well as suffer much mental, physical and sexual stress. Depending on how men and women deal with depression, why women are more likely to suffer from depression. When men are stressed, men try to do something else by stressing it out. On the contrary, women increase the time limit by stressing that they can suck it up. As a result, women are more depressed by prolonged stress. Now let’s talk about the problem of depression in the elderly. Nowadays, it is more common to forget that things do not happen as quickly as before. The real reason for this oblivion is the lack of memory, but the sadness that makes it difficult to focus on the depressed mind As the life expectancy is increasing worldwide, the proportion of the elderly among the population is increasing The problems with these growing senior citizens are a little different than at a young age. This is a period of physical decline. Dependency may occur during these times. Not getting the respect it deserves, financial problems wander, sometimes neglected by the younger generation. Many times one of the elderly couple dies, while the survivor is exposed to grief. Diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, joint pain, cataracts in the eye are very difficult. These diseases have to be treated. The mental, emotional needs, and psychological needs of the elderly are often overlooked. Psychiatrists conclude that people suffering from depression are prone to suicide. Extreme depression and suicide are closely related. 40 to 60% of people commit suicide following a severe setback. It also appears that many doctors commit suicide every year. Many of these doctors’ suicides are the cause of depression or bipolar disorder. Mood disorders are widely seen in doctors, and the worst part is that they know of effective means of suicide. According to one research, people who give more priority to wealth, social status, and other things are more depressed. People, who buy happiness in the form of goods, mean that it can never be happy. Consumerist attitudes are viewed in the head, though they have a negative impact on a person. To do this, the journal Psychological Science did a research, showing two types of images to to individuals, one of which was just men in one type of image, and the other type of images were diamonds, jewellery, carts, electronics items in what appeared to be advertising, men in the group whose attention was on expensive motor vehicles, Diamonds, electronics the goods images, depression and anxiety when they consider the trial was excessive. They appeared to be more lonely and competitive than others. Many people go into depression, seeing that the products they advertise on TV show that they can’t afford them, so many researchers claim that even if they reduce their TV viewing, the risk of depression will be reduced. One study asked eighteen-year-olds to prioritize jobs, money, and place in the community and feelings of love for themselves and colleagues’ feelings on the other, then after twelve years, the same children, at 30, asked them to re-prioritize these same things. How is mental health then? Area, than that the tests were conducted. In those tests, children who were both materialistic and manipulative in the age group of 18 and 30, were more likely than others to be psychotic. And those who were not that tended to be happier. We now look at the treatment modalities of depression Cognitive behavioural therapy is mainly in the treatment of depression After about 10 to 20 sessions with the patient, the results of psychotherapy begin to appear. The patient is helped to identify and correct the patient’s bias and their aversion. Alternative treatments include Ayurvedic and homeopathy treatments on depression. Exercise, Yoga and proper diet are the measures to be taken in supplementary therapy. relaxation
therapies, environmental therapies for example aromatherapy, music therapy psychotherapy, talk therapy, interpersonal therapy, IPT, spiritual therapy, activities, interactions with animals and others have a great impact on depression. Approximately 40% of people receiving drugs and psychotherapy are fully healed.
