Mental illness is not your fault.

There is no single cause for mental health disorders; instead, they can be caused by a mixture of biological, psychological and environmental factors. People who have a family history of mental health disorders may be more prone to developing one at some point.

Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the U.S. and can happen at any age, but usually begins in adulthood. Research suggests that it does not have a single cause, but a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors, and can be triggered by a life crisis, physical illness or something else entirely. The most common factors contributing to depression are trauma, genetics, life circumstances, brain changes, medical conditions or illness and substance abuse. 

If you or a loved one is experiencing a mental health condition like major depression, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! The Center for Health Care Services can help.

How are you feeling?

Sad or Blue?

You May Be Dealing with Depression

Everyone has felt sad or blue from time to time, but major depression goes well beyond temporary feelings of sadness or going through a rough spot. Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder that can cause severe symptoms affecting how you feel, think, and handle daily activities such as sleeping, eating, or working. Some will only experience one depressive episode in a lifetime, but for most, depressive disorder recurs. Left untreated, depression can be devastating for the person and their family. Fortunately, with early detection, diagnosis and a treatment plan consisting of medication, psychotherapy and healthy lifestyle choices, many people get better.

Depression is not uniform. Signs and symptoms may be experienced by some sufferers and not by others. How severe the symptoms are, and how long they last depends on the individual and his illness. Below is a list of the most common symptoms:

 

  • Constant feelings of sadness, anxiety, and emptiness
  • Changes in sleep, appetite and energy levels may be increased or decreased
  • Lack of concentration
  • Loss of energy or agitated purposeless energy
  • Lack of interest in activities onceenjoyed by the person
  • Hopelessness or guilty thoughts
  • Physical aches and pains
  • Suicidal thoughts
Worried or Anxious?

You May Be Dealing with Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress that helps a person cope with a tense situation and serves to improve performance. For example, driving in heavy traffic is a common source of anxiety, but it helps keep us alert and cautious to avoid accidents. Anxiety can also interfere with a person’s life by causing intense feelings of fear or distress, and can impair a person’s relationships or ability to work or go to school if not treated.

There are various types of anxiety disorders including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder and phobias. However, all anxiety disorders have one thing in common: persistent, excessive fear or worry in situations that are not threatening. People typically experience one or more of the following symptoms:

 

Physical Effects of Anxiety Disorders

  • Dizziness, decreased sex drive, irritability
  • Increased muscle tension
  • Chest pain, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Nausea or diarrhea
  • Blushing, sweating, or trembling around other people

Psychological Effects of Anxiety Disorders

  • Poor concentration or memory
  • Fear that something terrible is about to happen
  • Feelings of being cut off from reality
  • Feelings that others are talking about you or judging you
  • Feeling very self-conscious in front of other people and worried about feeling humiliated, embarrassed, rejected, or fearful of offending others
Having Mood Swings?

You May Be Dealing with Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a brain disorder that causes dramatic shifts in a person’s mood, energy, activity levels and the ability to think clearly. Symptoms of bipolar disorder can be severe and are different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. People living with bipolar disorder often experience extreme lows (depression) and extreme highs (mania), and sometimes feel paranoid, believe things that aren’t true or hear voices. These lows and highs usually occur in cycles, and may last weeks or even months.  

 

Symptoms of either a manic or depressive episode may include:

  • Severe mood changes; feeling “too happy” or very depressed for weeks
  • Having a lot of energy or very little energy
  • Talking very fast, being unable to get a complete thought out
  • Getting little or no sleep for many days in a row without feeling tired 
  • Engaging in reckless behaviors such as spending sprees, drug use or impulsive sex
  • Believing one has increased abilities (delusional)

It is important to seek treatment immediately for any one of the following symptoms associated with bipolar disorder:

  • Impulsive behavior and poor judgment is putting job, home-life or person at risk
  • Staying awake for 4 or more days in a row
  • Periods of intense depression and isolation
Numb or Disconnected from Yourself—Like You're on High Alert?

You May Be Dealing with PTSD

Traumatic, shocking, scary or dangerous events including an assault, natural disaster or military combat, can have lasting effects on a person’s mental health leading to post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. People who have PTSD may feel stressed and afraid long after the danger is over. Symptoms often co-exist with other conditions such as substance use disorders, depression and anxiety, and typically begin three months after the traumatic incident has taken place, but sometimes can begin years afterward.

 

Symptoms associated with PTSD include:

  • Feeling as though one is living through the event again by memories, stressful dreams, or flashbacks  
  • Avoiding situations or conversations that remind them of the traumatic event
  • Feeling hyped-up, suspicious and paranoid, constantly scanning their environment for danger
  • Avoiding intimate relationships

Stay positive!

Being mentally and emotionally well takes work and doesn’t happen overnight. It’s learning how to cope with stress, build and maintain relationships with family and friends, overcome life’s daily challenges and recover from setbacks and hardships one day at a time. It’s more than just being free of mental health conditions. It’s about the way you feel about yourself, manage your feelings, and most importantly, having the presence of positive and hopeful attitudes and characteristics. Everyone experiences setbacks, good days and bad days. Being mentally and emotionally healthy is having the ability to bounce back from these difficulties.

 

Much like there are things a person can do to improve their overall physical health, there are simple and easy ways to boost or maintain mental and emotional health, too. Bonus: the mind and body are interconnected so it’s no surprise that doing good for your body will also do great things for your mind.

 

  • Be physically active.
  • Make social interaction a priority.
  • Learn how to manage emotions and maintain healthy stress levels. 
  • Consume a healthy, well-balanced diet.
  • Sleep! Make it matter. 
  • Find meaningful purpose in life through relationships, volunteering, mission-driven work, caregiving, or engaging in leisurely enjoyable activities like art or music therapy, gardening, journaling or building something with your hands.
