Without realising it, the daily demands of someone may actually be negatively affecting their well-being.
If left unmonitored, this can lead to some serious physical and mental health conditions that, if noticed earlier, could have been treated at the outset and not left until the individual’s normal life was disrupted.
Examples of how daily life may contribute towards depression are very varied and individuals may experience more than one at the same time. Some examples are:
- Experiencing Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
- Being bereaved.
- Going through a divorce.
- Experiencing a short- or long-term period of stress.
- Unemployment and financial issues.
- Physical illness.
- Problematic relationships.
- Where an individual lives and the quality of their home.
