Depression Q&A

What is depression?

Depression is a severe or ongoing feeling of sadness or hopelessness. Situational depression appears to be caused by a traumatic life event, but sometimes depression develops without known causes. If depression symptoms don’t ease or feel crippling, see Kimberly for an evaluation and treatment.

She is instinctively empathetic and supportive of how depression causes poor functionality in personal, professional, and societal roles. She focuses on helping patients feel encouraged, hopeful, safe, and emotionally and psychologically stable using evidence-based treatments and spiritual support.

What does depression look like?

Depression can appear as:

  • Extreme or long-lasting sadness
  • Loss of interest
  • Hopelessness
  • Feeling worthless
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Not caring about important matters
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Guilt or shame
  • Substance misuse
  • Changes in sleeping patterns

It often goes hand in hand with other mental health disorders, like anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Depression can diminish your job or school performance and cause conflicts in your relationships.

What causes depression?

Many things can lead to depression — a divorce, breakup, death in the family, chronic medical problems, job loss, or financial difficulties. Other risk factors include a personal or family history of mental health challenges, excessive body weight, and lack of a solid social support network.

Adopting healthy lifestyle habits could reduce your risk of depression, but you can’t always avoid it.

How is depression diagnosed?

Kimberly can diagnose depression after discussing your thoughts, mood, emotions, and behaviors. She asks about additional symptoms, your personal and family medical histories, and your medications before personalizing a treatment plan.

How is depression treated?

The standard depression treatments are cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), other forms of psychotherapy (talk therapy), medication, and making lifestyle changes. Kimberly takes a faith-based approach to treatment, using the Christian Scriptures and other methods to help you overcome complex challenges and emotions.

She encourages you to reduce stress, eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. Surround yourself with a positive social support network, and see her for therapy sessions as needed to maximize your mood.

If you are experiencing long-lasting sadness, hopelessness, or other common symptoms of depression, get the individualized help you deserve. Call Source 23 Psychiatry, LLC in Columbus, OH at (614) 905-5900 or book an appointment online!

PSALM 23: 1-6

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
