Depression

 

Let our professional Psychologists at The Rosy Room, Springfield Lakes help you manage your depression

We can all feel sad, low or flat from time to time, but when you experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) and sometimes without any apparent reason then we call it depression. Depression is more than just a low mood and it is definitely not a sign of weakness or something you can just snap out of – depression is a serious illness that has an impact on both physical and mental health. In fact, according to Beyond Blue on average 1 in 6 people will experience depression at some stage in their lives.

The good news is that with professional help from a psychologist at The Rosy Room, Psychology Practice Springfield Lakes, you can learn the tools and strategies to manage your depression, and prevent it from returning in the future.

Depression can present itself in different ways, including the following common symptoms:

  • Tearfulness and a persistent feeling of sadness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Poor memory
  • Chronic body aches and pains
  • Changes in sleep patterns including insomnia or oversleeping
  • Change in appetite and weight gain or loss
  • Low energy and a constant feeling of tiredness
  • Loss of sexual interest
  • No longer enjoying favourite activities and hobbies
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Thoughts of suicide or of harming someone else
