by MHT Podcast | Psychology 101

Human psychology and emotions play a major role in depression. Feelings of low self-worth, low mood, guilt, hopelessness are some of the common emotions felt when a person is suffering from depression. Psychological aspects such as negative thinking, distorted cognitions, sadness are prevalent as well. There is persistent sadness when one is suffering from this mental illness. The course of sadness or low mood is not necessarily due to a traumatic incident or loss of a dear one. Since it is not easy to understand our own emotions, forget others, it becomes even more difficult to understand such symptoms of depression. Occasionally introspecting our own thoughts and feelings can really help us develop a healthier thought process. But more importantly, providing the right awareness to self about depression can be the first step in recovering.
