Ignore at your own peril

Do you know what depression is and more importantly about its early symptoms that would help one diagnose it and initiate the treatment process. Yes, it’s true that depression if left untreated can play havoc with your overall being and mental health with far reaching ramifications.

The reasons for the debilitating impact of depression is not far to seek: it impacts the brain. Depression can be attributed to genetics, changes in hormone levels, certain medical conditions, stress, grief or difficult circumstances in one’s life. The combined impact of one or more than one of the mentioned factors can spark off changes in brain chemistry and resultant symptoms of depression.
