DEPRESSION, ANXIETY & PANIC ATTACKS

What is Depression?

Chronic Anxiety can lead to panic attacks and depression! People with anxiety are chronically worried and anxious about real events, but also about events and threats that are unfounded. Anxiety comes in many forms and can be triggered by a number of things, including brain chemical imbalance, trauma, abuse, and diet. Depression affects an estimated 350 million people around the world, fewer than half of those affected receive treatment.

Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder. It can cause severe symptoms that affect how people feel, think, and handle everyday activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working. Generally, to receive a medical diagnosis of depression, the
symptoms must be present for at least two weeks.
Some forms of depression are slightly different, or they may develop under unique circumstances, such as:
• Persistent depressive disorder (also called dysthymia) is a depressed mood that lasts for at least two years.
• Postpartum depression is much more serious than the “baby blues” (relatively mild depressive and anxiety symptoms that typically clear within two weeks after delivery) that many women experience after giving birth.

• Psychotic depression occurs when a person has severe depression plus some form of psychosis, such as having
disturbing false fixed beliefs (delusions) or hearing or seeing upsetting things that others cannot hear or see (hallucinations).

• Seasonal effective disorder is characterized by the onset of depression during the winter months, when there is less natural sunlight.

• Bipolar disorder is different from depression, but it is included in this list is because someone with bipolar disorder experiences episodes of extremely low moods that meet the criteria for major depression (called “bipolar depression”).
