Depression: These symptoms of depression are most common in 90 percent of people, are you also a victim?

Depression and suicide: Cases of depression are continuously increasing in India. People even commit suicide due to depression. In such a situation, it is important for you to know the symptoms of this problem. Dr. Rahul Chandhok in the Department of Mental Health and Behavioral Science has explained this in detail.

Depression is a problem which is gradually increasing its scope. This problem even forces a person to commit suicide. The matter of concern is that even today people avoid talking about this problem. If someone's mental health is deteriorating then the symptoms are not easily detected. What starts as anxiety, fear and panic turns into depression, which later causes many problems. According to the American Psychiatry Association, cases of depression are increasing across the world in the last few years. The hectic life has made the situation worse. More cases of this problem are coming in the age group of 14 years to 30 years. In most cases, people are not aware that they are suffering from depression.

Now the biggest question is how to know that you are suffering from depression? In this regard, doctors say that by identifying the symptoms of depression at the initial stage, it is possible to get treatment before the condition worsens. But even today people avoid talking to doctors regarding mental health. This is the reason why many people fall prey to depression. According to the World Health Organization, India has the highest number of people suffering from depression. There is a need to create awareness regarding mental health from an early age. For this, first of all it is important to know the symptoms of depression which are found in 90 percent of the patients of this disease.

These are the symptoms

Dr. Rahul Chandok, Head Consultant, Mental Health and Behavioral Science, Artemis Hospital, Gurugram has described these 11 symptoms.

Dr. Chandok says that a UNICEF survey in 2021 revealed that Indian youth are hesitant to talk about mental stress and depression. Dr. Chandok says that if the symptoms of depression are identified and treated on time, the cases of suicide can be significantly reduced.

Therefore, it is important that if you are experiencing these symptoms of depression, you should talk to a doctor. If you are noticing these changes in the behavior of any of your acquaintances, friends or family members, then help him/her.
