IMPORTANT: If you are considering attempting suicide, PLEASE skip down to the second post, it could save your life!

Depression
It can be a very difficult illness to deal with because it throws its victims into a physical and emotional hurricane. However, you are not alone, millions of people deal with depression and millions more have recovered. It is as treatable as a broken leg; you just have to give it time to heal.
I hope this can be helpful for you whether you are wondering if your depressed are depressed or concerned for someone, I hope this will help you answer your questions and cope with depression.



Basic Depressive Symptoms


Frequent sadness, tearfulness, crying
Hopelessness
Decreased interest in activities; or inability to enjoy previously favorite activities
Persistent boredom; low energy
Social isolation, poor communication
Low self esteem and guilt
Increased irritability, anger, or hostility
Difficulty with relationships
Frequent complaints about physical illnesses such as headaches and stomachaches
Frequent absences from school or poor performance in school
Poor concentration
A major change in eating and/or sleeping patterns
Talk of or effort to run away from home
Thoughts or expressions of suicide or self-destructive behavior

Types of Depression
A good start in the battle against depression is to identify what type of depression you may be dealing with.
In accordance with the symptoms stated above we will be talking about specific types of depression and there differences.
(Please note we are not doctors, we cannot diagnose or treat depression)

Major Depression

Also called clinical depression or unipolar depression

An episode of Major depression will cause a noticeable difference in behavior and especially in normal routines.

You usually like to spend a lot of time with friends and family, you are a very social person. You have a Major depression episode and suddenly all you want to do is stay in bed and avoid any social situation, you have prolonged feelings of being sad and hopeless and that things will never get better.

You feel as if there is no more pleasure in life; you find that your regular sleeping or eating patterns have changed.
You are usually an active person but all of a sudden you find yourself in front of the TV all day, you’re bogged down and feel the weight of the world on your shoulders.

You have hobbies interests or activities that previously have given happiness and enjoyment but now seem replaced with emptiness and sadness. You are feeling guilty for no relevant reason; you feel sluggish and have a hard time concentrating.
You are having aches, pains and headaches that will not respond to treatment.

If you have felt like any of this for more than to week, there is a good chance its Major depression and not just “the blues”

Atypical Depression

Atypical depression is somewhat like Major depression, with the exception that at certain moments you are able to feel happy.
You feel that your happiness revolves around outside influences including, compliments, success at work or school, and other general positive events but you go back into the depressive state when things are not going so well.

You are extremely sensitive to rejection, failure or and type of judgment.
When you are in your happy state, you are able to feel pleasure again, life seems good, and you enjoy simple things like the taste of food again.

Since you have felt this depression, you have gained weight, and seem to be overeating to the point of gaining 10 or more pounds.
You are also over sleeping 10 or more hours a day (or 2 more hourse then you regularly would sleep without depression)you seem to always be late for appointments and other events because of not being able to get our of bed.
You feel a leaden (Heavy) like feeling in your arms and legs.

This is what it is typically like with Atypical depression, but since we are all unique we may have 1 or more different types of depression or even combinations.

Psychotic Depression

This is one of the most severe types of depression, and can be hard to diagnose.

You feel the common traits of being depressed as stated above (basic depressive symptoms) with the exception that that you will sometimes will experience visual or audio hallucinations.
Some people hear voices criticizing them, telling them that they are inadequate or evil, or telling them that they do not deserve to live and should kill themselves.
However, unlike other mental illnesses like Schizophrenia you are aware that they are untrue which can make you feel like your crazy.

Bipolar Depression
Bipolar depression is a feature of bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, an illness characterized by mood swings from depression to mania. They diagnose you with the same symptoms as Major depression, but bipolar patients tend to also have Atypical features.
Some bipolar patients rapid cycle can be up and down in a matter of minutes, and in mixed states and mania and sometimes others can be present at once.

Situational Depression
As the name says, it usually caused by a situation that includes Life change, relationships ending, school/work, death of a friend/family/pet etc.
This type of depression has the normal characteristics of depression (Basic depressive symptoms) but is caused by a situation as stated above.

The length of the situational depression generally is determined by the crisis level of the life event (as perceived by the sufferer). For example, a teenager who fails a big exam may be depressed for a day or two. A teenager who loses a parent may be depressed for weeks, months, or years. Big losses generally cause longer periods of depression.
Most of the time situational depression catalysts (casual events) will be easy to spot a death, divorce, job loss etc, but sometimes it can be more difficult to spot for instance.

You may have been optimistic for something and it does not turn out the way you wanted/planned for it to turn out.
You may not think too much of it at first, even though it was a bummer you did not think that it would cause depression.
However, you look back and maybe examine yourself before and after the event, you realize that it is the cause of your situational depression.

So you my point is you should really take a look at certain events in your life and examine how much of an effect they actually had on you.
One of the most effective treatment options for situation depression is therapy (read below “What is therapy”).

Anti-Depressants
What are antidepressants?

Antidepressants are medications aimed at relieving the symptoms of depression.
There are three main classes of antidepressants –MAOIS, tricyclics, SSRIs, plus others that are referred to as having novel actions. Regardless of what class they fall into, all anti depressants work on the principle of enhancing one or more of of three neurotransmitters in the brain.

What are neurotransmitters?
Neurotransmitters are molecules that specialize in delivering packets of information from one neuron to another across a narrow gap called a synapse to receptors on the receiving cell. After a wave of neurotransmitters are released by the presynaptic neuron and absorbed by postsynaptic neuron, the presynaptic neuron vacuums from the synapse any remaining neurotransmitters in preparation for the next wave of neurotransmitters it will release. Two classes of antidepressants work by blocking this “reuptake” action to keep the neurotransmitters in circulation.

What are MAOIs?

MAOIs – monoamine oxidase inhibitors – are old generation antidepressants, Parnate (tranylcypromine) and Nardil (phenelzine) being the best know. They work by blocking the enzyme monoamine ocidase, which allows the neurotransmitters to function as usual. Side effects can be very burdensome, which make these drugs a last option.
These include an outside risk of hypertension, which necessitates extreme dietary restrictions. Some psychiatrists, however, believe these drugs work particularly well for atypical depression, and should be regarded as a viable treatment option. Somerset Pharmaxeuticals has just released EMSAM (selegiline), a transdermal patch that is not supposed to have the usual MAOI side effects.

What are tricyclics?

Also called TCAs, tricyclics are old generation drugs that work by blocking the reuptake (or absorption by the neuron) of the neurotransmitters serotonin and the norepinephrine, Elavil (imipramine) and Pamelor (nortriptyline) the two best known. Like MAOIs, the side effects can be burdensome, but because the drugs operates with equal force on two neurotransmitters, some psychiatrists believe they may be more potent than the more popular single-actions SSRIs.

What are SSRIs?

SSRIs – selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors – work by blocking absorption of the neurotransmitter serotonin. The SSRIs include Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine), Celexa (citalopram), Lexapro (escitalopram), and Luvox (fluvoxamine). Although these drugs have been hyped as breakthroughs for treating depressions, they are no more effective than their MAOI and tricyclic predecessors. Their one advantage is their more benign side effects profile. Nevertheless, the side effects can be considerable, including weight gain, dry mouth, drowsiness, disturbed REM sleep, and sexual dysfunction.

Therapy
Although Anti-Depressants can be wonderful and take the edge off your depression your doctor may recommend Therapy.

What is Therapy?
Psychotherapy is a general term for a way of treating mental and emotional disorders by talking about your condition and related issues with a mental health professional. It's also known as talk therapy, counseling, psychosocial therapy or, simply, therapy.
Through psychotherapy sessions, you may:
• Learn about the causes of your condition so you can better understand it.
• Learn how to identify and change behaviors or thoughts that adversely affect your life.
• Explore relationships and experiences.
• Find better ways to cope and solve problems.
• Learn to set realistic goals for your life.
Psychotherapy can help alleviate symptoms caused by mental illness, such as hopelessness and anger, so that you can regain a sense of happiness, enjoyment and control in your life.
Psychotherapy can be short-term, with just a couple of sessions, or it can involve many sessions over several years. It can take place in individual, couples, family or group sessions. Sometimes psychotherapy is combined with other types of treatment, such as medication.

Art Therapy
Art therapy, also called creative art therapy, uses the creative process to help people who might have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings. Creative arts can help you increase self-awareness, cope with symptoms and traumatic experiences, and foster positive changes. Creative art therapy includes music, dance and movement, drama, drawing, painting and even poetry.

Behavior Therapy
Behavior therapy focuses on changing unwanted or unhealthy behaviors, typically using a system of rewards, reinforcements of positive behavior and desensitization. Desensitization is a process of confronting something that causes anxiety, fear or discomfort and overcoming those responses. If you have a fear of germs that triggers you to excessively wash your hands, for instance, you might be taught techniques to stop your excessive washing.
Cognitive therapy
Cognitive therapy is designed to help you identify and change distorted thought (cognitive) patterns that can lead to feelings and behaviors that are troublesome, self-defeating or self-destructive. It's based on the premise that how you interpret your experiences in life determines the way you feel and behave. If you have depression, for instance, you might see yourself and your experiences in negative ways, which worsens the symptoms of depression. Like behavior therapy, cognitive therapy focuses on your current problem, rather than addressing underlying or past issues or conflicts. Unlike behavior therapy, however, your experiences are an important part of the cognitive therapy process.

Cognitive-Behavioral therapy
Cognitive-behavioral therapy combines features of both cognitive and behavior therapies to identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviors and replace them with healthy, positive ones. It's based on the idea that your own thoughts — not other people or situations — determine how you behave. Even if an unwanted situation doesn't change, you can change the way you think and behave in a positive way.

Dialectical Behavior therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavior therapy. Its primary objective is to teach behavioral skills to help you tolerate stress, regulate your emotions and improve your relationships with others. It was originally designed for people with borderline personality disorder, who often have suicidal behavior. But DBT has been adapted for people with other conditions, too, including eating disorders and substance abuse.
Dialectical behavior therapy is derived, in part, from a philosophical process called dialectics, in which seemingly contradictory facts or ideas are weighed against each other to come up with a resolution or balance. For instance, you might learn about accepting who you are while at the same time making changes in your thoughts and behaviors.

Exposure Therapy
Exposure therapy is a form of behavior therapy that deliberately exposes you to the very thing that you find upsetting or disturbing. It's especially useful for people with obsessive-compulsive disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder. Under controlled circumstances, exposure to the event or things that trigger your obsessive thoughts or traumatic reactions can help you learn to cope with them effectively.

Interpersonal Therapy
Interpersonal therapy focuses on your current relationships with other people. The goal is to improve your interpersonal skills — how you relate to others, including family, friends and colleagues. You learn how to evaluate the way you interact with others and develop strategies for dealing with relationship and communication problems.

Play Therapy
Play therapy is geared mainly for young children at specific developmental levels. It makes use of a variety of techniques, including playing with dolls or toys, painting or other activities. These techniques allow children to more easily express emotions and feelings if they lack the cognitive development to express themselves with words.

Psychoanalysis

In psychoanalysis, you examine memories, events and feelings from the past to understand current feelings and behavior. It's based on the theory that childhood events and biological urges create an unconscious mind that drives how you think, feel and behave. In this type of therapy, you explore those unconscious motivations to help make changes to improve your life. You might also do dream analysis and free association — talking about whatever happens to come to mind.
Psychoanalysis is a long-term, intensive therapy that often involves several sessions a week with a psychoanalyst for several years. In formal psychoanalysis, you lie on a couch and the therapist sits unseen behind you. The practice evolved out of theories developed by Sigmund Freud.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
Psychodynamic psychotherapy, based on the theories of psychoanalysis, focuses on increasing your awareness of unconscious thoughts and behaviors, developing new insights into your motivations, and resolving conflicts to live a happier life. It's one of the most common types of psychotherapy. It's less intense than psychoanalysis and is usually done sitting face to face with a therapist. It's also less frequent — usually once a week — and is shorter term, usually a year or less.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy includes a variety of therapeutic techniques, such as exploring your past, confronting your beliefs and actions, offering support, and interpreting your thoughts and behavior. That process allows you to become aware of and acknowledge the link between a feeling, thought, symptom or behavior and an unconscious meaning or motivator. With that new understanding, you can modify unwanted behavior or thoughts.

Psychoeducation
Psychoeducation focuses on teaching you — and sometimes family and friends — about your illness. Psychoeducation explores possible treatments, coping strategies and problem-solving skills for your condition. You might learn about resources in your community, such as support groups or housing options. You can also learn about symptoms that might indicate a potential relapse so that you can take steps to get appropriate treatment. Psychoeducation can be especially useful for people with chronic or severe illnesses, such as schizophrenia.

Conclusion
Depression can be a crippling disorder If you let it, but with help from Family/friends and a Psychiatrist you can over come your depression and hopefully move on and grow from the experience.

Depression and Getting Help


Depression can throw your life into a state of turmoil, and sometimes it can be impossible to pull yourself out without outside assistance. Th hardest battles cannot be fought alone, nor should they. It is important to talk to someone if you ever feel depressed for prolonged periods of time, because if you let depression get out of hand, it can ruin your life.

The Importance of Getting Help


Many teenagers are afraid to talk to anyone about their depression for any number reasons. They may be afraid of the reactions they get, they may not see it as a big problem, or they may not know how to go about doing it. This can be dangerous, because if depression is left alone and covered up for extensive periods of time, it can get to the stage where the sufferer becomes suicidal. For this reason, it is important to get help as soon as one comes to the conclusion that they are depressed.

If you think you are depressed, or are showing symptoms of depression, remember that depression is curable... and the first major step is talking to someone. Without outside help it is impossible to undergo therapy, get the counseling you need, and possibly go on meds. Even just talking and letting out your feelings to a trusted adult can help you a lot. Having someone to confide in means you don't need to keep your feelings all bottled up inside.

There are ways you can go about helping your depression get better by yourself, but even so getting professional help is strongly urged. Since depression is often a psychological disorder, there is only so much you can do to cure yourself, and often it will take help from a professional to cure yourself completely and for good.

For these reasons, getting help is important, and it is the biggest step you can take to overcoming your depression. Fighting depression alone is never a good idea, and the more support you can get, the faster you will make your recovery.

Who Should I Talk To?

Once you have decided that you are going to tell someone about your depression, you have a few options for who to go to. Parents, school counselors, and close friends are all options that you can choose from, an though each has its pros and cons, in the end, any help is better than none.

Parents

Parents are an obvious source of help with depression, as well as an option that may be more comfortable for you than others. Parents are often supportive with their kids' problems, and can help you take some steps to begin dealing with them. Though it may be hard to imagine, your parents were teens at one point as well, and they most likely had some problems of their own, so they can be very understanding.

Approaching your parents is sometimes easier said than done, however.. Revealing your troubles to anyone can be difficult, but when talking to your parents, you may feel more hesitant because you are afraid of their reactions, or you might think they will be angry at you for not telling them sooner. While it is true that some parents may react badly, or blame themselves for the problems, in most cases you will end up getting the help you need, which is the most important thing.

Sometimes parents will blame what seems to be depression on puberty, and the hormones in your body. While sometimes the stress of school, the hormones from puberty, and everything else can cause what seems to be depression, it does not mean that it shouldn't be checked out. “Better safe than sorry” is an excellent principle to apply here, because the chance that depression could turn to suicide, however small, is one that should not be taken. For this reason, you must be persistent even if your parents don't pay attention to your worries at first.

There are several things you can do to help you show your parents that your depression is something that should be looked into. Finding resources on the web which outline the sympotms of depression can make a good case for you, if you present them to your parents and associate your moods and feelings with them. If this doesn't work, talking to another trusted adult such as a school counselor, a teacher, or a friend, and having them help you approach your parents is also a possibility, and one that might prove to be more effective if you can't convince them yourself.

School Counselors

School counselors are an excellent resource for teens who suffer from mental illnesses. Since many required to undergo special training to become a counselor, normally they are there because they want to help people. Their training in helping teens can be valuable to you in assisting you in getting the help you need to overcome your depression.

There are several cases in which you may want to go to a school counselor instead of a parent. It may feel more comfortable for you to talk to someone outside your family, or it could be that your parents don't think there's a problem. Whatever the reason, it is perfectly fine to talk to a school counselor if that's what you feel most comfortable with.

There is no special requirement for setting up an appointment with a school counselor, it is often as simple as going to the school's office and asking to set up an appointment. During the time they spend with you, they will do the best they can to help, and listen to what you have to say. If necessary, they may call your parents at some point and talk to them about your depression, especially if they think professional help is advisable.

School counselors can be a great step in getting to the professional help stage, especially if you are unsure of where to go next. Always keep them in mind as a possibility, and know that they are there for the purpose of helping you.

Friends and Peers

While your peers may not be able to provide you with professional advice, they can be a source of comfort when you're going through a tough time. That being said, there are risks to confiding in friends, as sometimes teenagers aren't the most understanding people in the world, and may shy away from those who are different.

If you're ever thinking of going to a friend for help or comfort, choosing the right one is important, as well as not exposing yourself to too many people, as this carries more risk. A friend that is understanding, mature, and comforting is often your best bet if you do decide to go this route, and it may be wise to approach him/her slowly, so as not to freak them out or make them uncomfortable.

While it's always good to build some support for yourself, other teens may not be the best option due to the insecurities they may have, as well as the lack of tolerance some have to situations which make them feel uncomfortable. Be careful when choosing friends to confide in, for the wrong friend could make things worse for you instead of better.

Conclusion

You should never try to face severe depression alone. It is a dangerous battle, and when it's your overall happiness, and sometimes your life, which is on the line, it is not worth it. Talking to someone is a giant leap for many teens, but once you clear it, it often gets much better, and much easier to deal with.. With supportive people at your side, it becomes much more realistic for you to overcome your depression, and start living a happier, healthier life.


Author's Note

I wrote this guide from experience. I know how hard it is to make that first step... to talk to someone, but it is worth it. It is the best decision you can make in your fight against depression. Even just talking to someone helps a ton, and you may be surprised ho much people care about you even if you think they don't. So please... if you think you're suffering from depression, tell someone. It is not something you want to let be... that is a terrible mistake. And always remember that it is treatable. And you will be so much better for it.

Sources and Thanks

While it isn't related to depression exactly, I used this site for information on school counselors, as school counselors are school counselors no matter how you look at them.

I'd also like to say thanks to Lance and Thomas who helped me with ideas for this as well as kind of helped me specialize it to one are and figure out what exactly it was about.

Oh, and I have to mention I stole the formatting off Lance. :P

And of course those who helped me with my depression, who inspired me to write this... I wanted to give something back to the world in return for the help I received.

Re: Depression: What It Is, Getting Help & Suicide Hotline Numbers
 
Can I suggest, for telephone numbers in Australia...
The number listed there is the interstate number for Samaritans WA, but is not nationwide. There are two other nationwide services, Kids Helpline (1800 55 1800), and Lifeline (13 11 14).
In Western Australia, there is Samaritans Youthline, Crisis Care (08 9223 1111), Mental Health Emergency Response (1300 555 788), Samaritans (Youthline) (08 9388 2500), Sexual Assault Resource Centre (08 9340 1828), Gay & Lesbian Counselling Services (08 9420 7201), Poisons Information Centre (131 126), Shadow of Suicide (08 9381 5555), just to name a few. They're all operating 24/7, and useful in a crisis. Poisons Information is nationwide, 24 hours and can provide advice, after an attempted suicide.

Also, for Great Britain & Northern Ireland, there is Childline, which can be accessed on 0800 1111.

And that number for New Zealand - When it's dialled from within New Zealand, it should be dialled with a 0 before the 4 (area code 04).

Situational depression isn't really depression at all, it is sadness for a reason. Depression is being sad and you don't know why. Being sad from a tragic event, is a normal human emotion. You should not tranquilize natural sadness with drugs (antidepressants), it won't go away until you talk about the tragic event and how it affected you with a person you can talk to such as a friend or even a counselor. Take it from me someone with experience.

Not that I've ever heard of but there are many that are toll free and don't show up on phone bills later on if you want to use a house phone and not have it recorded. A quick google search could pull up a few options.
