From Centro Integra, we carry out the diagnosis and treatment of depression in order to overcome its symptoms through clinical psychology.
WHAT IS DEPRESSION?
Depression is an emotional disorder which presents itself as a depressed and unhappy mood that can be intermittent or permanent. It is important not to confuse depression with sadness or melancholy, since these feelings appear occasionally, are temporary and disappear in a few days.
We talk about a person having a depression disorder when it negatively interferes with the development of their daily life, causing pain both for those who suffer from it and for those around them. At this point it is best to find a psychologist who specializes in the treatment of depression in order to overcome it.
SYMPTOMS: HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM SUFFERING FROM DEPRESSION?
The symptoms that a depressed person can present can be very varied, but we always find great sadness among them.
Among the most prominent symptoms of depression we can find:
