Depression is a common mental health condition that has a variety of physical and mental symptoms. Although we all feel down and fed up every now and again, depression is more than just that. If you have the condition, you can be sad for weeks, or even months at a time.
Types of depression include:
• Mild depression
• Clinical depression
• Bipolar disorder
• Postnatal depression
• Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
Living with this condition can be difficult, not only for sufferers, but also for those around them. Despite this, many sufferers will wait a long time before seeking help. This is especially true if they fear it will see them rejected, ridiculed or deprived of a sense of control. Frontline counselors address these issues with care and compassion, bringing about an emotional transformation that provides the sufferer with what’s needed to cope and succeed.
