5 Different Types of Depressions And Their Symptoms

Depression is one of the most widely found mental health disorders that can negatively and dramatically impact the quality of your life. If left unchecked, it can lead the sufferer to such an extreme level that they can even commit suicide. Depression is such a brutal mental health disorder that it can rob you of your peace of mind, take away your opportunity to work, restrict your social activity, and that’s just the beginning.

There are different types of depression with more or less similar symptoms. Being the best psychiatrist in Bhopal, we have come up with this blog post to introduce you to some of the most commonly found types of depression. So, without wasting any time, let us have a look at them in brief:

Teenage Depression

It is not so common among parents or guardians to notice teenage depression in their children. Hormonal changes are the major cause of teenage depression. A child with teenage depression may exhibit changes in mood, behavior, and other traits as well. If your teenager refuses to be outdoors, spends most of the time in his or her room, ignores all friends and families, consider speaking to them gently, or takes them to a psychiatrist in Bhopal.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression hits nearly 30 percent of the women out there. It is one of the most brutal forms of depression that mostly appears after 2-3 months of giving birth in women. Constant fatigue, lack of interest in the child, aggression towards the newborn, anxiety, mood swings, etc. are some of the many symptoms of postpartum depression.

Chronic Depression

This is another severe form of depression. It acts like a slow poison and can last for years to come. People with chronic depression may appear normal from the outside, but they die inside every day. They find no point in their existence in this world. Only a trained professional can help you fight chronic depression. Low efficiency, frequent headache, insomnia, etc. are some of the symptoms of chronic depression.
