Depression - types of clinical depression that require treatment

Depression is a medical disorder like high blood pressure or diabetes. It is an abnormal mood associated with specific and reversible chemical changes in the brain.

Depression is not a sign of weakness not is it a state you can just snap out of. Nobody is immune from depression and it can happen at any age. For many people depression is triggered by a stressful life event, alcohol or drug use or an unresolved long term difficulty. However in some people there is no obvious trigger.

Symptoms can be intense and disrupt work, social and family life. Treatment involves helping the person change the way they think about life so they can recognise their achievements. Sometimes it is also helpful to explore other past areas that may be contributing such as past loss or abuse.
