What Causes Mental Health Problems?
It’s related to complex interactions between many biological, psychological, and social factors.
Life events such as losing a loved one, unemployment, and childhood trauma may lead to the development of symptoms of depression.
Depression can affect how you think, feel, and behave, and it can lead to a variety of problems in your day-to-day life.
It can cause symptoms that disturb your appetite or sleep. You may also feel frequently tired and have difficulty concentrating. Sometimes depression can make you feel like your life is no longer worth living. The effects of depression can be recurrent or long-lasting and may require long-term treatment. But do not be discouraged.
Depression is not a weakness and is not something you can simply “snap out of”. A variety of psychological and pharmacological treatments exist for the treatment of depression, and many people with depression feel better with psychotherapy or medication. At MindVibe, we offer both, which when used together, are clinically proven to decrease both the symptoms of depression and its likelihood of reoccurrence.Free Evaluation
Typically, people have multiple episodes of depression throughout their life, although depression can occur only once. During this time, symptoms can occur most of the day, for nearly every day. Symptoms include:
For many people, these symptoms of depression cause problems with personal relationships, work, school, or social activities. Often people feel generally unhappy without knowing why.
Although children and adolescents experience many similar symptoms of depression to adults, there are some differences. Children may also refuse to go to school, be under or overweight, be irritable or clingy, and have aches and pains. Adolescents may also be angry, have poor attendance or performance in school, feel misunderstood, avoid social interaction, use alcohol or drugs, sleep or eat too little or too much, or self-harm.
Depression is not a normal part of aging. Often it may go unnoticed and undiagnosed in older adults, causing many to feel reluctant to seek help. Symptoms of depression in older adults may be less obvious, and include:

One of the most common reasons people seek treatment when depressed is that they feel stuck. They know they should be able to move forward with their life — maybe even start a new job, get married, and have children — but something is holding them back. Depression can make it difficult for you to do the things you used to enjoy doing and make your day-to-day life more complicated. Therefore, to get on with life, you need to get treatment.
Your energy wanes when you are depressed, making all the other aspects of your life feel like they will never get better. You try to work but the effort takes you out of commission. You would rather spend time at home because it feels like there’s nothing to do or nobody needs you. The sad part is that you have no idea how much better you would feel if you got help for your situation.
If left untreated over time, depression can lead to thoughts of suicide. These thoughts are often related to the feeling of hopelessness or isolation. You may feel like you have no purpose in life, that everything is going wrong, and that there is no reason for you to be alive. Treatment can help alleviate these thoughts and make your life happier again.
