Most Common Causes and Types of Depression

Depression is a mental illness that can take over your life and cause a variety of psychological, emotional, and physical symptoms. Depressive disorders are a category of mood disorders that can cause immense loneliness, sadness, and disinterest. These periods can come and go daily or interrupt your life for months at a time.

Some of the most common types and symptoms of depression include:

  • Postpartum depression: Experienced by parents after a child is born, postpartum depression can involve insomnia, exhaustion, irritability, and difficulty bonding with your child.
  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD): Often occurs in places with significantly less sunlight at certain times of the year, especially in the winter months. Symptoms include fatigue, hopelessness, and social withdrawal.
  • Major depressive disorder (MDD): One of the most common depressive disorders, major depressive disorder is often caused by a combination of biological, psychological, and social stressors. It materializes as feelings of sadness, disinterest, or thoughts of suicide. It also influences your sleep schedule, appetite, energy level, and self-esteem.

Depression can have major impacts on someone’s life. Negative thoughts and low confidence can make reaching out feel impossible. We want you to know that you don’t have to deal with depression on your own. Consulting a mental health professional can help. A therapist or psychiatrist will be able to diagnose your symptoms and work with you to create a treatment plan that addresses your needs.

If you want to talk to someone about your depression and are wondering, “Is there depression counseling near me?”, consider scheduling a session by phone or online at Thriveworks Counseling in New Orleans, LA today.

How Does Depression Counseling Work? How Can Depression Therapy Help?

Therapy has become a buzzword in recent years, but you might still feel a social stigma about seeking counseling. We want to do everything we can to break the stigma surrounding mental health care. At Thriveworks, skilled and empathetic therapists help clients work through their depression using a variety of techniques and treatments.

Two common ways of treating depression are through talk therapy sessions and prescription medications. Oftentimes, therapists implement the use of both approaches in order to treat depression more holistically. Whether your depression is triggered by trauma from your past or ongoing stress at work or home, the right therapist or counselor can help you work through it by discussing your personal needs and goals.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an example of a type of psychotherapy frequently used to treat depression. CBT focuses on helping people notice and change negative patterns of thought and behavior.
