Depression & Loss

Sadness is a natural emotion. When we experience loss or harm, or when someone close to us does, sadness is very normal and can even be a healthy reaction.  But sadness that becomes prolonged for weeks or months, or unhappiness that becomes a filter through which we view the world, and our lives, is called Depression. Sometimes depression is brought on by a loss, bereavement, or major life event; other times there is no single event or specific cause.

Signs of Depression

Depression can show itself in many different ways including as a loss of happiness, or in problems with your physical well-being affecting your concentration, appetite, or ability to sleep soundly.

Depression affects people of all ages, nationality, and from all classes and walks of life. In fact, depression is one of the most common behavioural health problems in North America, with estimates that as many as 20 million people suffer from symptoms of depression.

Help for Depression

Fortunately, in the majority of cases, depression is very treatable through psychotherapy. The important thing is to know that help is possible, and to take steps to do something about it.
