Major depression can affect about 16 million adults every year. It is a mental disorder which can affect people of any age, sex, or race without sometimes there being any obvious cause for it occurring. Unfortunately, about 66% of people who are experiencing major depression don’t seek out help even though it is available. There are some facts people should know about depression in case you or someone you know experiences it.
People should know that the symptoms of depression can vary for people and some of them are not always obvious. People can be experiencing emptiness or sadness. They might start eating too much or not enough. They might lose interest in activities, even though they have greatly enjoyed in the past. Sometimes people struggle with negative thoughts but on the outside they present as if everything is fine.
When suffering from depression people’s bodies can negatively react. It can cause shortness of breath, stomach issues, and headaches. Scientists that have researched depression have shown that it has an effect on the brain to where both the structure and circuits look and work differently compared to someone not depressed.
Experts in the field that helps people with depression say that there is not nearly enough funding to research it. They point out that breast cancer gets one hundred more times in funding each year. As people can commit suicide while being severely depressed it is an issue that doesn’t get enough attention or donations.
