Depression is Not a Fashion Accessory

 In a somewhat disturbing turn of events, it is now becoming apparent that a lot of people today are defining or terming themselves as “depressed” when in actuality they are not.

A lack of proper awareness has led people to mistake routine or subclinical feelings for the psychological disorder known as depression. As a result, there are people who are truly victims of this disorder who are not given the mental, social and emotional support that they require.

We have come to a point where people label victims of depressions as ‘attention – seekers’ and thus add insult to injury. The growing number of people who say they have depression without actually being depressed per se has only contributed to this issue or made things worse.

As a victim of depression, you may find that despite your attempts at getting over the disorder, you are not having adequate success and also are finding too little social support. This is exactly where the help of professional mental care practitioners, psychologists and therapists comes into the picture. Many people need someone to listen to and understand them while offering them helpful advice specifically tailored to their life situations.

Going through depression in a world that does not understand the problem can really be tough. More and more people these days seem unable or unwilling to empathize with others, and it can be pretty hard to fight the darkness of depression all alone.

Please feel free to call us for therapists in Denver and surrounding areas. Our licensed, caring therapists have made mental health care their life’s work. Many of them have availability and accept a wide range of insurance plans.
