Causes And Overcoming Depression?
Hello, I’m a professional student at the State University in Depok. May 15, 2019 ago, my mental condition was very down after fighting with my parents accompanied by various problems that were piled up in the back until it was really “unable to focus and could not do my work as usual. I realized there was something wrong with my mental, remembering me I experienced a lot of traumatic events from childhood. I tried a depression test that day from the UK mental health foundation, metal health America u0026amp; Canadian mental health association, and the results were similar. From the UK the results were “Your positive mental health score is below the national average , from the United States, I immediately stated that I was mild depression, and from Canada said that you were approaching the danger zone. I have not been able to go to a psychiatrist because of economic limitations, no one from my family knows this because the source of my depression from my opinion is my parents, so far only 2 of my friends know it without telling me the reason why I am depressed because I am not willing to tell all problems in my family. What should I do? Are there institutions that can provide free psychology guidance? Thank you very much.
Hello Nabella, thank you for asking.
Depression, as you may already know, is a mental condition characterized by prolonged sadness, fear, panic, or anxiety and disrupts daily functioning, both as an individual and as a social creature. A depressed person generally feels inferior, loses interest in anything, feels guilty constantly. These conditions certainly affect one's productivity, also affect one's ability to take care of themselves. Social abilities also generally decline. Not everyone realizes that he is depressed. Therefore, your actions to seek help are appropriate, because that means that your views on your psychological condition are still good.
Depression consists of various degrees, depending on what guidance the therapist is using. You can start trying to tell the condition that you feel right now, to your trusted friend. You are entitled to control how far you want to tell the problem you are experiencing. Show them that you need help and support. A good friend will certainly give positive feedback. Also say that you cannot yet fully explain the root of the problem, because it involves the good name of the family.
To the best of our knowledge, there are currently some free psychological help online. You can try searching online, determine which one you think is most appropriate for yourself. The consultation is free and may be valid for 24 hours. You can try online counseling first, while you also ask, the services of a psychologist or psychiatrist which roughly matches your financial condition. If you feel that the initial online counseling brings positive changes, you may be able to continue counseling directly, so that the treatment is more intensive. In addition, you try to focus on positive things. If you find something negative, leave it immediately so as not to make your psychological condition worse.
Thus it may be a brief explanation from me, hopefully you can soon find the most appropriate solution. Regards.
