Understanding Depression

When you seek treatment for depression at our Orange County treatment center, we can help treat the different types of depression that exist today.

Clinical depression or major depressive disorder is a mood disorder that has an impact on how you feel, how you think, and how you behave. Depression to this degree can interfere with your daily activities. Clinical depression is not something that you can overcome on your own by sheer force of will, but something that requires depression treatment in Orange County to help you manage symptoms long-term.

Causes of Depression

Serious depression is very complex, and there can be many overlapping causes or contributing factors.

Some people battle major depressive disorder as a symptom of required medications. In these circumstances, the medications might be required for a more serious health concern like cancer. In this case, individuals need treatment in the form of coping skills or therapy that can help them manage the depressive symptoms.

Some people have undergone trauma, especially unresolved childhood trauma. They may not even know the trauma has led to depression. In any case, getting help in the form of cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, individual therapy, even family therapy can help individuals better understand the source of their depression and subsequently manage the triggers that lead to worsening symptoms.

Some individuals struggle with depression after significant life changes like the death of a loved one, and that depression compounds to the point that it becomes clinical depression that requires things like medication and therapy.

Women who struggle during childbirth might require medication as part of their long-term treatment to deal with postpartum depression.

Whatever your circumstance, depression can happen when you have any type of chemical imbalance in your brain. This chemical imbalance can be caused by medication, high levels of pain or illness, age, stress, diet, genetics, or even drug and alcohol abuse.
