    Depression is not limited to college going students. Nowadays its common to find it even among the adults and elderly people. I feel that the best way for dealing with it is by sharing the problems with the near and dear ones. Let them know how you feel about certain situations that lead to depressions. But family and friends too need to be very supportive during this stage. They need to be very patient in dealing with depressed people.

    Person's suffering from depression should be invariably taken to a psychologist for sure treatment.

    I have heard this many times, but are psychologists good enough to treat them? I am not aware of any incidents of these kind where a person is taken to psychologist & the person getting alright, do you have any idea how it works & whether it is fruitful?

    I agree. It is a very uncertain period & one needs patience with working around with these people. But to learn a lesson from such depression stage is very important for it to not recur again & again I feel..

    I feel the family needs to be very understanding. The depressed people become introvert due to which they keep a safe distance from everyone at every point of time which leads to some callous action from his/her end. This is when the depressed people are wrongly judged and get accused by the family. This has to stop. The family must give time and stop nagging. More love and affection should be showered upon them and take them into confidence. This will help the person to open up and discuss his/her problem. Naturally, the doors will open up for further discussion and which will help to make the depressed person understand the life quite well. Gradually, problems will get sorted out, the person will have a strong will power and thus, depression will take a back seat.

    Psychologist are a specialist in understanding human mind. They are the best person to diagnose the mental illness and treat them. They can understand better the real cause for depression. The family members can support the treatment process with constant love and care and showing patience. As Shampa had mentioned, the family members should also avoid nagging about matters that cause depression.

    This sort of counseling is very fruitful. Don't even doubt about it. A long period of counseling sessions will determine the root cause of depression. When the counselor will determine the cause, he will start healing the wound and person will thereby slowly come out of his depression.

    Depression is caused by many reasons , it could be genetic, prolonged illness or physical abuse. So unless one goes to the root of the problem it may be difficult to cure 


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    Depression is not a physical condition which can be cured by drugs. It takes its own time to get cured and thus it can be a lengthy procedure. Earlier it was rare and was usually seen affecting individuals who are aged. Today, even undergraduates and those in school can be seen affected by it. The reason is simple. Too much stress and turbulence created in mind due to everything that is going around. Check for early signs as early detection is easy to cure.

    It is known to many that Deepika Padukone went into depression. She too met psychologist and attended counselling sessions. She had recovered from it.
