“I am depressed’ is something that you hear from a lot of people; and in all possibilities would have said it yourself. Though used for denoting an emotional low or while going through tough times, “depression” is something serious, something that can change the mental fabric of a person’s mind if not treated properly at the right time. Characterised by consistent dull mood and inability to perform daily tasks, depression can even lead suicidal tendencies in extreme cases.
A depressed person needs immediate psychiatric help, and close monitoring.
Anyone showing symptoms of depression should be given special care and be careful, never ignore the signs as this condition can lead to extreme guilt/ loss of interest in life/ suicidal tendencies. Support from family and friends are also extremely important to rehabilitate a depressed patient.
