Slide 1: Risk Factors For Depression A risk factor is something that makes the probability of something taking place more likely. It doesn't suggest that it will occur-simply that it could. The more risk factors you have got, the elevated risk you run of developing a condition or disease. Depression can be triggered by numerous means, physical, psychological or environmental and each individual is different. If depression or mental sickness runs in your family, then you may be predisposed to developing depression yourself. A child with dad and mom who are suffering from depression is more likely to develop depression, especially as a teen when triggers for depression are more common. People who suffer from chronic pain or debilitating physical conditions are at a higher risk for developing depression than those in good health. Constant unrelenting pain and the prescribed drugs that are used to treat these conditions can trigger major depressive episodes. Physical changes in your body also can result in change in mental health. Patients who've suffered stroke, HIV/AIDS, heart attacks, cancer, Parkinson's disease or other major physical changes are at risk for developing depression One other contributing factor for depression is experiencing a significant life change. Moving, selling or buying a house, job loss or gain, divorce or new marriage. Disturbing conditions at work, the loss of a partner, loved one or beloved pet are all difficult situations. In the event you've already had a serious bout of depression then your risk of a reoccurrence is greatly increased. Individuals who have little or no social contact or help often become depressed. Young moms at home with small children sometimes really feel isolated and say that they feel down. Getting together with other mothers for play groups can relieve their feelings of aloneness and assist with their depression. Certain psychological elements, like low self-esteem and a pessimistic view of the world can make a person more prone towards developing depression than those with high self-esteem and an optimistic view of things. Low socio-economic status also can put you at a higher risk for developing depression, but the causes vary. Whether it's due to financial stress, perceived lower social status, cultural issues or simply every day stress, depression is more common in this group. Women are more likely to suffer from depression than their male counterparts-however whether or not that's resulting from the fact that most males do not seek assistance or even admit that they are having issues or because females experience depression more than males-just isn't completely clear. Being over the age of 65 increases your chances of depression, because of failing health, feelings of isolation, loss of mobility, chronic pain or bereavement and the elderly are much less likely to admit to needing help for this issue. In case you're having issues sleeping and your insomnia becomes chronic you're at a very high risk for developing major depression. Restful sleep is essential for sustaining optimal health and in the event you're not able to sleep you should seek help so the issue does not worsen. There are a lot of risk factors for depression, but thankfully this mental health issue is treatable and your doctor can help you decide if medication or counseling is in your best interests. how is depression in the elderly treated
