    Hello sir/madam what are the signs and symptoms of depression according to psychologist.


    Depression often involves persistent sad, anxious, or empty mood; feelings of hopelessness or pessimism; and feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness. It can also involve loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex. Decreased energy, fatigue, or a sense of being “slowed down” are also common, as are restlessness, irritability, and difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions. Many with depression have thoughts of death or suicide.

        Hi there, thanks for your suggestion. The article was really helpful.


          When diagnosing depression, psychologists and other mental health experts frequently take into account a variety of symptoms. It’s crucial to remember that each person’s experience of depression may vary, so not everyone will exhibit all of these symptoms. But a combination of the subsequent symptoms, which last for a long time (often at least two weeks), may signify depression: A persistent, all-encompassing sense of melancholy, emptiness, or hopelessness that lasts for the majority of the day, almost every day. Loss of Interest: A notable decline in enjoyment or interest in once-pleasurable activities including hobbies, social interactions, and relationships. Changes in Sleep Patterns: Hypersomnia (excessive sleep) and insomnia (difficulty falling or staying asleep) can be signs of sadness. medical Ailments or Symptoms: Sometimes depression is linked to undiagnosed medical conditions or symptoms like headaches, digestive issues, and persistent pain.

          Social withdrawal is the avoidance of once-pleasant social encounters as well as withdrawal from social activities, friends, and family. Suicidal or Death-Related Thoughts: Any persistent thoughts of passing away, dying, committing suicide, or attempting suicide calls for quick attention and help. Crying Spells: Repeated, uncontrollable crying fits that may happen without a clear cause.
