Learn to control symptoms rather than numb them

Mental Health RehabilitationMillions of people suffer from a mental health disorder, such as depression, every year and the numbers continue to rise. Because of social stigma, a lot of people who suffer from a mental health disorder are ashamed or afraid to seek treatment. If left untreated, the symptoms of mental health disorders interfere with the ability to function and lead to suicidal thoughts and/or attempts. There are thousands of mental health disorder treatment centers in the nation, with over 500 in California alone, that offer relief from the struggle with mental health disorders. California’s depression treatment centers offer natural and healthy mental health rehabilitation through therapeutic modalities and brain training.

Dealing with Depression

Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), there are over 10 types of depression, including:

  • Major Depressive, Chronic, Melancholic and Endogenous Disorder: Major Depressive, Chronic, Melancholic and Endogenous depression are all quite similar. Those who suffer will exhibit irritability, loss of interest, feelings of guilt and indecisiveness.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder: Seasonal affective disorder is related to seasonal changes. People who suffer from this depression usually start to feel sad in the fall and continue into winter; they begin to feel less moody in the spring and summer months.
  • Atypical Depression: Atypical depression is quite interesting because, unlike the normal characteristics of depression where nothing seems to make people happy, those with this type can feel a boost of their mood when a positive event occurs.
  • Perinatal and Postpartum Depression: Perinatal and postpartum depression occur in women during and after pregnancy. Studies show that about 15 percent of women experience some type of depression during their pregnancies. It would not be surprising to find out that a lot of these women blame their crying, anxiety or fatigue on hormones rather than a mental disorder.
  • Manic Depression: Manic depression, often confused with bipolar disorder, is characterized by someone who experiences periods of intense highs followed by extreme lows.
  • Elderly Depression: Depression among the elderly is more common than you think; mostly because they are going through extreme life changes, both mentally and physically and it is hard to cope with these changes, especially if they are doing it alone.

Like all mental disorders, the most common causes of depression are genetics, environment and family history. Other risk factors include low self-esteem or the inability to cope with stress. In 2010, researchers found a gene, critical for chromatin remodeling, that was present among 62 percent of people who suffer from a mood disorder. This research does not prove that depression is 100 percent genetic; however, it does prove that disorders are increased due to genetics.

According to the NIMH, “some research suggests that people with certain genes are more likely to develop” depression than others. Although it is not 100 percent that two parents with depression will pass it on to their children, it does increase the risk of it. In fact, when one parent has depression, their child has a 15-30 percent increased chance at developing it.

If depression is left untreated, like addiction, it can control every aspect of life and negatively impact home, work and social lives. Most people who seek help for depression meet with a psychiatrist first, where they are prescribed antidepressants. Although medication temporarily numbs the symptoms of depression, it does not treat them. Medication can also cause uncomfortable side effects, such as nausea, drowsiness, weight gain and suicidal thinking.

California depression treatment centers offer treatment without medication that allows patients to focus on the inner-psyche and recognize maladaptive behaviors and triggers. Depression treatment includes a combination of traditional and experiential therapies. Traditional therapies teach patients how to think positively, solve problems, rebuild broken relationships and think independently from stimuli. Experiential therapies help patients connect to the innermost feelings and thoughts in order to gain more insight into what causes certain behaviors.

All programs offered at California depression treatment centers are designed for patients to manage mental well-being and regain control of life.
