mental disorder


Depression is a mental disorder that affects a person’s mood, thoughts, and behavior. It is more than just feeling sad or discouraged, as it can significantly interfere with daily life and cause significant emotional distress.

3. Changes in appetite and weight:

There may be a decrease or increase in appetite, leading to unexplained weight loss or gain.

4. Sleep disturbances:

Insomnia (difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep) or hypersomnia (excessive sleep).

5. Fatigue or loss of energy:

Constant feelings of tiredness, lack of energy, or exhaustion, even after adequate rest.

6. Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt:

Irrational belief of being a failure or feeling guilty for things that are not one’s own responsibility.

7. Cognitive difficulties:

Problems with concentration, memory loss, slowed decision-making, or recurrent thoughts of death or suicide.



It is important to note that these symptoms should be present for a prolonged period of time (at least two weeks) and significantly interfere with daily functioning to be considered clinical depression.

The causes of depression can be multifactorial, involving genetic factors, chemical imbalances in the brain, hormonal imbalances, traumatic events, chronic stress, physical illnesses, and environmental factors.

The treatment for depression usually involves a combination of psychotherapeutic therapy and, in some cases, antidepressant medication. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most common and effective approaches, focusing on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and promoting behavioral changes.

If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of depression, it is important to seek professional help. A doctor, psychologist, or psychiatrist can provide a proper evaluation and recommend the appropriate treatment.

Remember that depression is a treatable illness, and with proper support, many people are able to recover and lead fulfilling and satisfying lives.Do not hesitate to contact conexionMED, we have the right professionals to support you in your process.
