Understanding Depression

What is it? | Who Does it Affect? | What other Mental Illness is Depression Tied to?

Depression is more than just occasional sadness—it’s a severe medical condition that impacts an individual’s thoughts, feelings, and daily activities. At Transformations Mending Fences, we understand the complexity of depression and offer specialized treatment plans to address the diverse types of depression, including:

  • Major Depressive Disorder: Characterized by persistent sadness, loss of interest in activities, and difficulty concentrating.
  • Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia): Features chronic, long-term depressive symptoms.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): A type of depression typically occurs in winter.
  • Postpartum Depression: A severe form of depression that can affect new mothers after childbirth.

Depression can stem from various factors, such as genetics, changes in hormone levels, certain medical conditions, stress, grief, or changes in brain chemistry. Regardless of the cause, major depressive disorder can significantly impact a person’s life. Fortunately, effective treatment is within reach at Transformations Mending Fences.

Depression and Its Interplay with Other Mental Illnesses

Depression doesn’t always occur in isolation. Often, it coexists with other mental health disorders, creating a complex web that impacts an individual’s mental well-being. Known as comorbidity, multiple disorders can intensify the severity of depression and complicate treatment. Some of the mental illnesses frequently co-occurring with depression include:

  • Anxiety Disorders: These include Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Phobias. They are often intertwined with depression, as both conditions can feed off each other.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Traumatic events can trigger PTSD and depression. Many individuals dealing with PTSD symptoms also experience depressive episodes.
  • Substance Use Disorder: Alcohol and drug abuse often coexist with depression. The use of substances can be an attempt to self-medicate the feelings of depression, but usually, it worsens the depressive symptoms.
  • Bipolar Disorder: Formerly known as manic depression, bipolar disorder involves severe mood swings that include episodes of depression and mania. These depressive episodes can be just as severe, if not more so, than those experienced in Major Depressive Disorder.
  • Schizophrenia: Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health disorder characterized by hallucinations, delusions, and cognitive issues. It’s not uncommon for individuals with schizophrenia to experience depressive episodes.
