Dealing with Low Mood/Depression

Overcome Your Low Mood/Depression With Help

If you have depression, it’s normal to find it difficult to take the first step in seeking support. If you know someone with depression, it’s also important to consider that they may have a hard time getting the mindset of seeking help from friends, family, or even a health professional.

However, it’s also important to consider the help a general physician can make when it comes to an early assessment. Our team from VIC Park Psychology know it’s important to tackle issues of depression early on in order to address problems much quicker and avoid symptoms becoming worse.

It’s important to remember that depression and anxiety issues can be two sides of the same coin. Surveys also show that 60 to 70-percent of those experiencing depression may have anxiety problems. Half of the respondents with chronic anxiety may also have clinically significant symptoms of depression.

There is good news, however. Psychologists and other professionals across the years have developed a wide range of treatments, services, and medications available to help cope with depression. Other techniques have also proven successful in treating depression.
