The Depths and Breakdown of Depression


This academic paper breaks down the illness of depression and discusses the different side effects and symptoms of having this disorder. There is some controversy over whether depression is an illness, disorder, or disease. I also discuss in this paper different types of depression. I go into detail about the differences and similarities amongst them all. There is much knowledge including facts and details about how depression effects different groups of people, such as, how depression effects people with disabilities, and how it affects single parents, for example. There is still much to be learned about this topic, such as which treatment methods are better for specific groups of people. There is also much valuable information on different treatment and help methods available for the disorder, such as, medication, natural remedies, and different types of counseling. Depression is very serious, and no one has to suffer alone. There is help out there. It’s ok to ask for help.
