Types of Depression and Anxiety
While most of us think of an anxiety disorder when there is anxiety present or a major depression order when there is depression, both mean something different. For instance, in addition to anxiety disorder, you also have:
- Panic or anxiety attacks are known as a panic disorder
- You have PTSD, known as post-traumatic stress disorder that is triggered by traumatic events
- Lastly, you have OCD or obsessive-compulsive disorder that entails repetitive thoughts and compulsions
The above are all categorized as generalized anxiety disorder, but the same applies to depressive disorders:
- New moms can experience postpartum depression after the birth
- In the colder, darker season, you can get people that have the SAD or seasonal affective disorder
- Then you have people with major mood shifts starting with mania leading to depression known as bipolar disorder
Yet, in both these mental health issues, it all starts with stress leading to anxiety and ending up in depression. So, one day you can feel despair and even hopelessness.
Yet, the good news is that you can get treatment for anxiety and depression right here with us. We offer each individual a treatment plan catered according to their needs. We use CBT, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy, among others.
When To Go For Treatment for Anxiety?

Secondly, while you're going through the blues for more than two weeks and it starts interfering with your life, you need help from a professional to deal with your anxiety issues.
Lasting anxiety can lead to depression and other serious mental health concerns. Your anxiety conditions can hurt your relationships, career, and physical health:
Your Physical Health
Both anxiety and depression can change your appetite affecting your actual health. The loss of eating leads to weight loss and other life issues. It can lower your immune system leaving you constantly feeling tired. While the opposite can also happen to lead to weight gain with the risk of increasing joint problems, diabetes, and heart problems. Both these life transitions hurt your life.
It Ruins Meaningful Relationships
For a meaningful life, relationships with others are part of it. When you have anxiety or depression from stress to trauma, you find it challenging to communicate with others.
