Does Depression Therapy Work?

Depression therapy is an effective way to treat depression. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in five people will experience a major depressive episode in their lifetime. Unfortunately, many people do not seek treatment for depression. Untreated depression can lead to long-term negative consequences, such as difficulty with work, relationships, and physical health. With depression therapy in Savannah, however, people can overcome depression and lead fulfilling lives.

What Does Depression Look Like?

Depression can manifest differently from person to person, and it’s important that your depression therapy is unique to your symptoms, needs, and goals. The depression therapists in Savannah are highly skilled and trained at treating depression disorders such as Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), bipolar disorder, persistent depressive disorder (PDD), and seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
Learn How Therapy Can Help

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is characterized by a persistent feeling of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest in activities you once enjoyed. It is the most common form of depression and many people will experience it in their lifetime. Fortunately, talk therapy is highly effective in treating major depressive disorder.

Bipolar Disorder is a mood disorder characterized by extreme mood swings, ranging from periods of high energy and action (mania) to periods of low energy and feeling down (depression). Bipolar Disorder is less common but is often very detrimental to life goals and overall health. A Savannah depression therapist can help you manage symptoms and get back on the right track.

Persistent Depressive Disorder (PDD) is a chronic form of depression where symptoms last for longer than two years. PDD often goes years without being diagnosed because of how difficult it is to spot the symptoms. People with Persistent Depressive Disorder might be labeled as “lazy” or “unmotivated”, but this is not the case. Depression is not your fault, and with therapy, you can start feeling more like yourself.

Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression that coincides with the changing of the seasons. Symptoms typically begin in fall and winter when there is less sunlight, and can include feelings of sadness, lethargy, and weight gain. Although SAD usually fades as the summer months start, it can make the winter months incredibly difficult. A depression therapist in Savannah can help.

What are the Symptoms of Depression?

Depression is treatable, and it's important to recognize the symptoms so that you can take appropriate action. Some common symptoms of depression include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Difficulty sleeping or excessive sleeping
  • Lack of energy or fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt
  • Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide

What are the Causes of Depression?

Depression is not a personal weakness or a character flaw; rather, it is a mental health issue caused by a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. Some common causes of depression include:

  • Family history of depression or mental illness
  • Chemical imbalances in the brain
  • Chronic stress or trauma
  • Chronic medical conditions
  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Poor nutrition or lack of exercise
  • Sleep disturbances

What are the Best Treatments for Depression?

Depression treatment is unique to the individual and will be discussed further with a Savannah depression therapist. All of Lifebulb’s therapists use counseling approaches that are backed by science and proven to help with depression symptoms and improve quality of life. Your depression therapist in Savannah might choose from techniques such as:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT helps you identify negative patterns and beliefs and then learn to replace them with positive, productive ones. This is achieved through a collaborative, goal-oriented therapeutic approach. It is one of the most popular and effective forms of depression therapy and works great in reducing harmful symptoms and increasing resilience and self-efficacy.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a type of talk therapy that helps you regulate your emotions and decrease conflict in your relationships. It is a good choice for people who experience intense sadness, hopelessness, or worthlessness, or people who have trouble completing basic tasks because of their depression, like cooking, cleaning, and personal hygiene.

I highly recommend Lifebulb. This resource helps connect people to professional counselors which is so helpful especially in days like these. Its so incredibly important to have a good counselor to talk with. A good counselor will connect with you and talk you through lifes problems and situations as they arise. A good counselor will also help you process and understand things from a healthy perspective. Its so helpful to have a professional insight and not just biased personal opinions like what family and friends sometimes offer. Its so important to process our thoughts in a healthy way, talking things out and putting all the peices together so we can have a clear picture, a goal and more targeted communication which helps all our relationships. Wishing all reading this review you find someone you can connect with and learn from and grow into your best you.
