Although many people would brush it off, depression is a very real thing that leads to hundreds if not thousands of suicides every year. It is important to create awareness in schools, offices and even public places about the signs of depression in order for people to recognize it in other people, a recognition that could potentially save a life. Another reason that depression awareness campaigns are important is for people who are silently suffering from depression to become aware that they are not alone in this, as there are many other people suffering from the same silent killer and that help is indeed available. Although a person suffering from depression may feel like they have no way out, there are a number of ways to overcome depression if help is sort out.
Seeking help and being aware

Although there are many cures to depression such as depression hypnotherapy, the depression first needs to be identified in a person. Healing from depression requires the person suffering from depression to take action and seek out help but for the person who is depressed seeking help and taking that action is hard. Therefore it is up to the people around them to identify and help them.

Signs of depression

For the person who is depressed simply thinking about the things that have the potential to pull them out of depression such as going out for walks, cycling or taking time off with good friends can be an exhausting thought. In fact, the people suffering from depression themselves often do not know that what they are feeling is in fact depression. Healing methods such as depression hypnotherapy can be a long way ahead as identifying and admitting that you are suffering from it can be a big hurdle in itself.

Some of the signs of depression are loss of appetite or an over active appetite that is different to how you used to be, sudden changes in weight either by loss of weight or a sudden increase in weight, loss of interest in activities that you once used to enjoy and love, changes in you sleeping patterns, sudden reactions such as anger at things that you really shouldn’t be too angry about, lac of energy and the feeling of constant helplessness and the feeling of hopelessness. If these are things that you experience in your daily life, it is important to seek out help as these feelings can only get worse and rarely ever get better.
