About one in five people will develop depression in the course of their lives. Depression extremely limits everyday life and can lead to the fact that one can no longer lead his life normally.
Depression has many faces and exhibits varying signs and facets.
From a medical point of view, depression is much more than just a temporary low, dejection or listlessness. But you can already change something preventively so that it does not come so far.
How do I recognize signs of depression?
Depression can affect your whole life. Your thinking, feeling and acting.
This is often recognizable by a depressed mood, lack of drive as well as fatigue and increased negative thoughts.
At first, these signs occur only sporadically. If left unattended, they can become an uninterrupted permanent condition.
What can I do?
There are various treatment options for depression. Psychotherapy is one of them.
Psychotherapeutic treatments usually consist of intensive discussions and behavioral exercises. The most commonly used method is cognitive-behavioral therapy. In addition to cognitive behavioral therapy, other methods include depth psychology-based psychotherapy, analytical psychotherapy and systematic therapy.
