Help for Individuals with Anxiety and Depression in Kansas City

Anxiety is more than just occasional moments of anxiousness in new situations or worry when facing the unknown. Depression is more than simply being tired at the end of your work day or fatigued after an argument. They are mood disorders characterized by intrusive thoughts bombarding you over a prolonged period of time, thoughts that make it hard to have a “regular” day.

If you are struggling with constant feelings of fear or annoyance, feelings that seem to annoy you incessantly crowd out others thoughts from your mind, you may be struggling with anxiety, depression or both. And you would benefit from talking to a mental health professional who specializes in anxiety and/or depression.

What Causes Anxiety and Depression?

Research shows there are several things that can lead to anxiety and depression. Though these issues may not be direct causes, there is evidence to indicate that people who have these challenges may be more susceptible to developing mood disorders. These issues can include:

  • Your Current Situation- The challenges and trials you’re facing now have a large impact on your state of mind. A divorce, the loss of a job, the death of a friend or family member, the stress of any one of these situations can contribute the beginnings of depression or anxiety.
  • Physiological Causes- Research shows that depression and anxiety have a biological component that may make some individuals more susceptible to these conditions. Studies indicate that our brain chemistry, poor nutrition and injuries to the brain can lead to developing depression or anxiety.
  • Past Experiences- Traumatic events may make you more susceptible to depression and anxiety. This can include childhood trauma from abuse or neglect, deeply emotional events suffered as an adult or a past history of substance abuse.

Living with anxiety and depression isn’t easy. Each condition can cloud your judgment, and warp how you see your life. Anxiety always has you constantly on alert, questioning what’s happening around you. You’re ceaselessly searching for the critical element in a friend’s statement, the critique of your efforts, unable to see the complement they provided in the way they meant it. Depression saps away the joy from every event and each occasion. You feel constantly weighted down, struggling to find the energy you need to get through each day. Together, anxiety and depression darken your vision and keep you from seeing the real life you have.
