People in medical healthcare proclaim high blood pressure as the silent killer. But in Mental Health, depression can be a silent killer. It seeps into the recesses of the brain and torments the person suffering from it to despair–to lose hope. Suicide is a consequence of undetected and untreated depression. The person, young or old, who suffers from depression or thoughts of lack of self-esteem, prolonged sadness, lethargy, and suicidal tendencies should seek assistance from a professional. If treated, depression can be controlled and often leads a person to improved health and wellness.
Share your feelings with family, friend, or physician. They can help. Because of the endless and tireless pursuit of mental health professionals and organizations like NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness), treatment for mental illness has progressed. They have reduced the stigma that exists for mental disorders.
