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

Personality disorder treatment is a therapy that specifically focuses on thoughts, patterns, and behaviors that are generally associated with personality disorders. The goal is typically to disrupt the deeply engrained patterns and replace them with those that are more conducive to leading a productive and fulfilling day-to-day life. 

While general therapy typically addresses a rather broad spectrum of mental health concerns, personality disorder treatment is primarily focused on the thoughts, patterns, and behaviors associated with maladaptive adaptations resulting in personality difficulties. The objective is to provide clients with the tools and coping strategies to manage their disorder and improve interpersonal connections.

The length of time clients with personality disorders seek treatment varies and is dependent on the individual as well as the personality disorder itself. While some may begin to see changes within a few months of treatment, others will benefit from more long-term, ongoing support.

The term “cure” is not necessarily applicable to all personality disorders. However, through increased self-awareness of patterns and triggers, adoption of healthy coping mechanisms, and deeper connections with others, clients can experience significant, positive shifts. This could include a reduction in symptoms and an overall improvement in quality of life.

No, prescribing medication is not typically a primary part of treatment plans for personality disorders. However, depending on the presence of other mental health conditions, such as anxiety or depression, some clients may find medication to be beneficial for addressing particular related symptoms.
