One needs to be mentally strong in moments of chaos or disruptions which may occur in the life of an individual. What could be the symptoms of depression? Some of it could be difficulty in concentration, recalling details, making decisions, feeling of guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, loss of interest in any activity which otherwise was a pleasure to indulge in, irritability, restlessness, fatigue, persistent aches and pains and much more.
Many people are often driven to suicide due to depression and are not in a proper frame of mind to hold on to their sanity and save their lives and their peace of mind. Our news updates are often flashing news on suicide of many individuals especially the younger generation who have been following the easy way out of ending their lives caused by depression either due to failure in examination, or a failed relationship and many more reasons in life.
With proper guidance and counseling, we could strive to make our own limited contribution in bringing about sensible reasoning and avert the suicide act as and when we come across such instances in life.
Suicide acts are very painful especially for parents when they come across their child who has committed a suicide act without taking their parents into confidence over their depressed issues of life. Parents need to gain the confidence of their children by being friends to them wherein they can approach them without any hesitation or doubt over any problems of life they may be going through.
This can draw the children closer to them and help them to seek advice and support whenever it is needed which can go a long way off in helping to avert any suicide acts in the near future. Besides the parents which are the first help and support, we also have many local bodies that reach out to these depressed victims and help them in providing and teaching them to be part of the solutions to their problems thus rendering all the required support depending on the case of the depressed victim.
Counseling centers provide help by way of counseling and guiding the person in identifying the root of the problem and the solutions to it. With counseling, many have found a reason once again to live and start life afresh, putting the past far behind them.
If the system of depression affects the life or causes difficulties in relationships in family life or at work place, it is essential to seek help of a health counselor or a health care professional who can render help and guidance to the depressed victim. Self help is the best help and the depressed individual could also make efforts on their part to get out of the depressed state of mind and not plunge further into it.
