I Think Someone I Love is Dealing with Depression, What Should I Look For?
Now that we have spent all this time with the technical side of depression, we are going to dive into what depression looks like for different people and age groups. If you remember from the beginning of the month, we talked about there not being one “cookie cutter” way that depression looks, and as you can understand now with all the different types and symptoms, it can become overwhelming even from a professional perspective. We are going to spend some time bringing it back down to the level of useful and applicable information. It’s no surprise the differences between men and women, adolescents and adults, and young adults and seniors. If you think trying to explain/understand the latest technology is hard between these groups, then you must imagine that the way depression affects the daily functioning can also look vastly different. We will first look at the ways that depression looks in the actions of men vs. women and will tackle adolescents and seniors.
