For example, the rehabilitation unit of the SOS Crisis Centre also organises rehabilitation courses and peer support groups. Additional information on rehabilitation can be obtained, for example, from the Finnish Central Association for Mental Health. Depression is a serious public health problem.
Alongside musculoskeletal disorders, it is the biggest reason for disability retirement in Finland. Depression as a mental disorder is now better recognised than before, resulting in a significant statistical increase in the number of people suffering from depression. However, generalisation about depression cannot be explained unambiguously. For example, it is possible that the stress and uncertainty of the modern work life, as well as the performance-based way of life, consume so much energy that the ability of those suffering from depression to function normally is lower than before, therefore resulting in increased disability caused by depression.
It is very common for a person suffering from depression to have self-destructive thoughts. Hopes of dying and suicidal thoughts express the person's will to get out of an extremely tormenting state brought on by severe depression. However, the hopelessness and pain caused by depression are not permanent.
Depression can be treated effectively and in a way that promotes recovery. People who have recovered from depression often say they feel like life makes sense again, even though nothing in it made sense during the height of the depression. The longer and more serious the depression, the higher the risk of suicide. This is why treatment must always be sought in time. Read more about suicide.unebfamoce.ga

Depression has a tendency to recur. The more serious the depression and the higher the number of previous depressive episodes, the higher the probability of recurrence. Early identification and treatment of depression is the best way to prevent new depressive episodes. Depressed persons often do not have the energy to maintain personal relationships and they may isolate themselves from the rest of the world.
Making the cut
However, close relationships and the social network are extremely important to them: depressed people need support and help from the people closest to them in order to prevent the depression and isolation from getting worse. Depression in a person close to us is difficult: feelings of loneliness and helplessness, as well as concern over the person who is depressed can be a very heavy burden to bear.
When someone close to us is depressed, it often creates mixed and difficult feelings. Relatives and friends should remember that they do not have to, nor should they, go along with the moods of the depressed person. Similarly, they do not need to react or try to find a solution to every manifestation of anxiety made by the depressed person. Sometimes simply knowing that someone really cares helps the person who is depressed.
One should keep in mind that the actual treatment of depression should be left to health care professionals.
However, it is often the task of family and friends to maintain the hopes of depressed persons: to remind them that they are getting the help they need and that it is possible to overcome depression. Family and friends should always remember to take care of their own well-being. An exhausted person will not have the energy to support someone else. That is why it is so important to try and live your own life, go out, continue hobbies as normal, or do whatever makes you happy even if someone close to you is depressed.
Enjoying life is not forbidden. Maintaining personal well-being does not take anything away from the person who is depressed; instead, it forms mutual resources. Support and peer activities are available for the families and friends of people suffering from depression. Sometimes it feels good to discuss what has happened together with people in the same situation. During adolescence, people develop fast physically, psychologically and socially. Adolescence is an important period in terms of the development of mental health. Depression-like symptoms may appear as early as childhood, manifesting themselves as restlessness, self-effacement and behavioural disorders.
However, the probability of depressive episodes is dramatically increased during puberty and shortly thereafter. Puberty is characterised by intense feelings, occasional melancholy and sadness.
Depression can be distinguished from these mood changes involved in the turmoil of puberty. Unlike adults, the most obvious symptoms of depression in young people are irritability or anger instead of the actual feeling of depression. Nevertheless, adolescents also experience the same feelings as depressed adults, such as losing interest in things they used to find interesting.
Depression in adolescents becomes especially concerting when their behaviour changes dramatically when compared to their previous behaviour. Girls are more likely to get depressed than boys, or at least depression in girls is more likely to be diagnosed. Social support is extremely important to a depressed adolescent.
Good relationships with friends and parents promote recovery. Many young people suffering from depression also suffer from another problem at the same time. These problems are most likely to be substance abuse problems , attention deficit and behavioural disorders, as well as eating and anxiety disorders. There are efficient treatments available for all these problems.
Self-Harm: A Help Guide
Seek help for a depressed adolescent. Changes in health and life situations brought on by old age may put a strain on mental health. The increased need for assistance, dependency on other people, and coping with grief and loss are demanding to mental resources. Depression in old age is often concerned with losing friends and family members, as well as the deterioration of personal physical health. Loneliness can also be very taxing to the mental health of many seniors.
Depression in old age easily goes unnoticed as many of the symptoms of depression, such as sleep disorders, fatigue and loss of appetite, are often considered as natural changes coming with old age. On the other hand, the condition of apparently demented seniors may have been significantly improved once the depression has been identified and treated. Isolation, vague pains, delusions and memory disorders in the elderly may be signs of depression, as well as of other illnesses.
Most mothers become more emotional after childbirth, to some extent at least. Emotionality is often characterised by crying, mood swings, irritability, and problems with sleep and appetite. The baby may feel strange and the mother may not feel as she would like.
