What is Depression?

Depression is having a feeling of loneliness, being drained, a continuous and constant sadness that makes you feel like having no energy at all. Losing interest in what used to be your hobby, the feeling that is not easily taken care of, may result in mental illness. There are so many types of depression, there are types that are mild and can easily be taken care of with the right approach, and some are too much to be handled alone. Depression is the culmination of things that are constantly affecting your way of looking at things, feeling like all the things that you do may result in something not good.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both anxiety and depression are emotional states that stem from particular mindsets. While the two have the tendency to overlap, they have very specific distinctions:

  • Anxiety is often experienced as excessive worry, restlessness, or concern regarding the future.
  • Depression, on the other hand, consists of feelings of hopelessness, sadness, or loss of interest or pleasure in everyday life.

Working closely with a therapist can help you identify whether or not you struggle with these and how you can actively heal from them.

In therapy, you’ll be prompted and guided to explore your innermost thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and triggers that could be connected to any emotional distress you experience. Through the practice of different tailored therapeutic methods, we’ll develop coping strategies that allow you to navigate challenging experiences and emotions. With time and practice, symptoms will decrease and you’ll be able to enjoy a more fulfilling life.

The length of time an individual continues therapy is entirely dependent on multiple factors including their particular needs and the presence of other mental health conditions. While some clients will begin to notice a reduction of anxiety and depression symptoms in a matter of weeks or months, others will benefit from more long-term, ongoing support before meeting their personal mental health goals.

While medication is not always necessary for the treatment of anxiety and depression, some clients find that it’s beneficial for the healing journey. This is always a personal decision and will vary person-to-person for a number of reasons.

Absolutely. Confidentiality is always key to client-therapist relationships. At Elysian, we take privacy particularly seriously and always use best practices to ensure that treatment and therapy are delivered discreetly.
