From a mental health counseling professional’s perspective, depression is a serious clinical condition that significantly affects a person’s functioning. It is a mood disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities, and feelings of hopelessness. Common symptoms of depression can also include fatigue, changes in appetite and weight, sleep disturbances, decreased energy, difficulty concentrating, and loss of motivation.

People with depression often experience changes in their thought patterns, such as ruminating on negative thoughts or guilt, difficulty making decisions, and suicidal thoughts. Depression is often accompanied by a variety of physical and psychological symptoms, including chronic pain, headaches, and irritability. It is important for people struggling with depression to seek professional help, as it is often a chronic condition and can have significant impacts on quality of life. Therapeutic interventions, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, and spiritual counseling, can help people with depression gain insight into the underlying causes of their symptoms and develop coping skills to manage the condition. Additionally, medications such as SSRIs, SNRIs, and other antidepressants can be beneficial in minimizing the symptoms of depression.
