Different Types & Signs of Depression Treated by Charlotte Therapy Center

There are many different types of depression that affect a broad range of individuals. The following are just some of the different types and signs of depression that Charlotte Therapy Center treats:

  • Major/Clinical Depression: Major — or clinical — depression is characterized by persistent sadness and lost interest in life activities. People with clinical depression feel a combination of symptoms for long periods, including suicidal thoughts, restlessness, agitation, worthlessness, guilt, an inability to see positive solutions, an inability to focus, increased sleep, exhaustion, lethargy, and weight loss or gain.
  • Postpartum Depression: Sadness following childbirth is common; however, several weeks of sadness and anxiety can indicate postpartum depression. Symptoms include feeling depressed, withdrawing from friends and family, lost interest in life activities, panic attacks or racing thoughts, changes in sleeping or eating, anger and irritability, and lethargy.
  • Seasonal Depression: Also known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD), this type of depression typically occurs during the fall and winter months. Those suffering from SAD will feel depression, hopelessness, and fatigue, with many also experiencing heaviness in their extremities, frequent oversleeping, weight gain and cravings for carbs, and relationship problems.

If you or someone you know is living with depression, it’s imperative to seek help from a licensed professional. When left untreated, depression can negatively impact many aspects of a person’s life, including their work, general interests, and relationship. In severe cases, patients with depression can even be driven to suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
