Some Statistics About Depression

Almost 15% of depressed people will commit suicide.

During any six-month period, nine million American adults suffer from a depressive illness.

The number one cause of disability in women is depression, states a report by the World Health Organization.

Studies indicate that depression occurs twice as often in women as in men, according to the American Psychological Association.


By 2020, depression will be the number one disease and the second greatest single cause of disability and death in the world, especially among the elderly, predicts The World Bank and the World Health Organization.

Most people with depression do not seek treatment.

Depression is not a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be willed or wished away.

Without treatment, symptoms can last for months or years.

Even those with the severest form of depression can be helped.

6 Signs of Depression

Major Depression is characterized by:

at least two weeks of depressed mood
loss of interest in most activities
symptoms that cause distress in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning
children and adolescents may be irritable rather than sad
increased irritability or persistent anger and an exaggerated sense of frustration over minor matters
at least four additional symptoms of depression (see below)

Top

What are the symptoms of depression?

Not everyone who is depressed experiences every symptom. Some people experience a few symptoms, some many. Severity of symptoms can also vary from one person to another. You may also review and print out "Depression Worksheet."

Depression:

depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day
diminished interest in nearly all activities
fluctuating weight and/or appetite
difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
sleeping excessively
feeling fidgety or restless
feeling sluggish
fatigue or loss of energy
feelings of worthlessness
feelings of excessive or inappropriate guilt
diminished ability to think
difficulty concentrating
indecisiveness
recurrent thoughts of death

Top

What causes depression?

The primary cause of major depression is unknown. The following list may identify some of the contributing factors involved:

persistent stress
the breakup of an important relationship
feeling out-of-control
low self-esteem
pessimistic attitude
may run in some families
major loss such as career, job or business
chronic illness
difficult relationship
financial problems
forced change in lifestyle
loss of a loved one
a decline in physical or mental health
substance abuse
a side effect of some prescribed medications
toxin exposure

Top

Are there different levels of depression?

Depression is measured along a continuum ranging from mild to moderate to severe.

Top

How is depression treated?

There are varieties of antidepressant medications and psychotherapies that can be used to treat depressive disorders.

Recent research reviews indicate that psychotherapy is at least as effective as anti-depressant medications for mild to severe depression and is more effective in helping to avoid relapses.

Life Coaching & Alternative/Holistic  Counseling can usually offer even more dramatic and accelerated success toward recovery when combined with one or more of the powerful natural approaches to treating depression, such as:

amino acids
dietary supplements
herbs
nutrition
vitamins and minerals
fish oil
homeopathy
Bach Flower remedies
acupuncture
biofeedback
exercise
volunteer work
body work
journaling
more ...

Can people with depression help themselves?

When in combination with professional treatment, self-help can make a difference with your day-to-day feelings and progress.

Avoid difficult tasks or responsibilities.
Break large tasks into small ones.
Don’t expect too much from yourself too soon.
Try to be around others; it’s usually better than being alone.
Do activities that make you feel better.
Keep a journal. This is one of the most effective self-help techniques you can do.
Become a volunteer. This is another effective self-help technique that can really make a difference. 
Exercise.
Get out; participate in religious or social activities.
Postpone making major life decisions, if possible.
Recognize that feeling better takes time.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, psychotherapy only has a 20% success rate.

I have a 97% success rate, and over 37 years experience.


I honor and respect your race, religion, culture, and way of life including senior citizens and those with disabilities.

I also welcome adults in consensual, sane and safe, alternative sexual and other creative lifestyle choices.

DID YOU KNOW...

85% of anxiety sufferers also struggle with depression?


Testimonial

When I began working with Dianne, I was depressed, unorganized, and unmotivated.

Even though I made good money in the construction business, I could not seem to manage it worth a darn.

I was always scrambling to meet payroll and other bills. There was no real joy in my life.

Dianne not only helped me clear out some old and painful issues that had been keeping me stuck in depression, she got me back on track with setting new goals.

We set a goal and a date for coming up with a $25,000 down payment so I could buy a new home to live in that was located in a great residential area.

It worked and happened right on schedule!

I built a couple of houses, a liquor store, three garages, and the bridge project finally came through.

But that is nothing next to the aerospace company that I am now part of. I was voted president at the last meeting.

It is really exciting, and I am now able to hold my own in a room full of rocket scientists.

We have some very ambitious and exciting projects involving satellites in the works! –S.F. read more
