How will you help a person in depression?
Depression is a mental state which if not attended to at the right time can lead to further disorders. Most of us are not really aware and so does not give much importance to mental illnesses. Do you know anyone who is suffering from depression? How do you think you can help him out of it? Let us discuss this socially relevant topic with all its seriousness and try to understand more through this discussion.
Depression is a word that most of us are scared off which affects many people. A person can get depressed for various reasons and normally, the way a depressed person behaves will vary. Some might cry for small things, some scream out of frustration, some prefer to be lonely and thus isolate themselves from everyone. Battling depression is not an easy task but with the help and support from others, maybe even a therapist, a person can get over it.
Often, people hesitate to share their depression and struggle for themselves, making things worse. And sometimes if they share, they might not get complete support.
If you come across a depressed person or if someone close to you is depressed, how will you help him? If needed will you take him to a psychiatrist? In India, most people think that going to a psychiatrist is not good as the person will be considered as mad. What do you feel?
