Depression: 3 Symptoms & Warning Signs to Look for, Lexington, North Carolina

Depression is a serious illness affecting both children and adults throughout the world. Fortunately, through treatment and counseling, a full recovery is absolutely within reach. But with any mental health issue, getting the right help requires the correct diagnosis. When it comes to depression, you need to know what signs to look for, so you can seek help immediately. At Daymark Recovery Services, with multiple locations throughout North Carolina, their experienced professionals not only identify mental illness but work to treat it as well.

Although depression can manifest in many different ways, three of the most common warning signs are:

  • Loss Of Interest In Activities: Although all people will experience the occasional period of sadness in life, this is not a mental health problem. A key indication that what you’re experiencing is more than a healthy emotional response to life circumstances is the loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed. If hobbies, work tasks, and social activities no longer stimulate you, it may be time to seek help.
  • Depression-North-CarolinaChange In Appetite: When a person is depressed, very often, their appetite will change noticeably. While it is common for a person’s appetite to decrease during a period of depression, it can also increase substantially as well. Either of these changes will frequently lead to fluctuations in weight and may help to identify a mental illness.
  • Mental Difficulties: Depression doesn’t only affect your mood, but also your overall ability to think clearly. If you’re finding that your memory is no longer as sharp as it once was or tasks at school or work have become more difficult for you, talk to a professional to get a proper diagnosis.

If you have depression, there is hope. With treatment at Daymark Recovery Services, providing care to people throughout North Carolina, you can begin the process of recovery. Check their website to find a location near you, or call (336) 242-­2450 for more information.
