Caring depression psychologists in Melbourne CBDSeptember 26, 2017
If you are struggling with depression, our caring team of psychologists in Melbourne CBD has wide experience in successfully treating depression in its many different forms.
There should be no stigma when it comes to depression – just support, understanding and professional strategies to help those affected to live happier and healthier lives. Research reveals that about one in five Australians suffer from depression during their lives and need psychology treatment.
Our depression psychologists in Melbourne CBD offer treatment for many types of depression. Whether you suffer from mixed or major depression, anxiety, dysthymia, psychotic depression or bipolar disorder, Reflection Psychology’s team uses evidence-based treatment, tailoring every approach to the individual and their illness.
While it’s not unusual to feel sad or down sometimes, when these feelings last for weeks and longer, it’s time to seek help. Depression symptoms can include: shutting yourself away from family, friends and activities you used to enjoy; angry outbursts; low confidence and self-esteem; a drop in concentration levels; sleep problems; reduction in libido; changes in eating patterns; and suicidal thoughts.
Suicide prevention organisations across the country, and around the world, have used this month to draw attention to suicide, a major cause of early and unnecessary death.
World Suicide Prevention Day and a range of activities and events have taken place in September in an on-going effort to get conversations started and information out there to help people struggling to cope with life who are at-risk of suicide.
And the collective message? There’s support, hope and treatment available and you don’t have to suffer alone.
No community or country is untouched by suicide. It’s the biggest cause of death for Australians aged between 15 to 44 years – both men and women. More than 3000 people committed suicide in the nation in 2015. These are terrible figures and every single loss of life is a tragedy.
If you feel lost, alone and overwhelmed by depression, please make that call for help. Turn to family, friends, your doctor or a psychologist to get support and start the journey towards a more positive life.
Our depression psychologists in Melbourne CBD provide quality treatment in a supportive and caring environment. Reflection Psychology also has other clinics across Melbourne for patient convenience. Please contact us to book an appointment.
