Counseling & Therapy for Depression & Other Mental Health Issues

The desire to stay in bed is a feeling which we are all familiar with, especially on Monday mornings. The occasional feelings of fatigue or disinterest are also a part and parcel of our lives. However, when these emotions persist for long periods of time, they could be symptoms of something more serious- a major depressive disorder known as depression.

What Is Depression?

Although the term ‘depression’ is used very commonly, clinical depression refers to a mood disorder which is characterized by persistent low mood, feelings of sadness, and a loss of interest. Clinical depression typically lasts for 6-8 months.

Based on its severity, depression can take a heavy toll on our daily functioning and quality of life. At its worst, it can lead to a withdrawal from daily activities and society at large.

It is necessary to be able to identify the symptoms of depression, and to seek proper help for it. Various treatment centers are emerging in and around Dubai. With the right help, depression is a highly curable disease.

Do I Have Depression?

Some of the common signs of depressions are-

  • Emptiness & Sadness
  • Reduced interest in activities that were previously enjoyed
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Inability to think clearly
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Suicidal thoughts and ideation

Since a lot of the symptoms of depression overlap with normally occurring emotions and actions, it is important to keep in mind that one of the most important characteristics of the symptoms of depression is their persistent or recurring nature. The symptoms have to be present for at least 6 months to be considered depression.

How Do I Cope With Depression?

Depression is the world’s most common mental illness. The WHO estimates that around 350 million people worldwide are affected by it. In the UAE itself, 15% of the population suffers from mild depression, while around 4-5% of the population suffers from severe depression.

There is no single test to diagnose depression. The most common way of getting a clinical diagnosis is by meeting mental health professional. They will most likely ask you for personal and medical history and help rule out any physiological causes for your symptoms.

The mental health practitioner will also help you identify the type and severity of your depression. Clinical depression can also take the form of bipolar or manic depression. Bipolar depression involves a wide variety of mood swings ranging from manic highs to depressive lows. These manic phases sometimes make it harder to identify than other forms of depression.

Your practitioner will help you create a treatment plan that is best suited to your symptoms. Treatment for depression often includes a combination of medication and cognitive behavioral therapy. Other practices might be suggested as per the symptoms.
