It has been estimated by the federal government of Canada that by the year 2010 depression will be an epidemic. Depression is the second leading cause of disability claims in North America, second to stress. It is estimated that in 2007, it cost insurance companies over 2 billion dollars dealing with depression alone.

Whom Does It Affect?
Serious depression is experienced by 5-9% of the population at any given time. Many people can feel embarrassed to admit being depressed due to the negative stigma around it. However, the facts are that the occurrence or depression can happen to anyone. Further it is unrelated to education, income or marital status. If left unattended depression can seriously affect our health, relationships, career and general well-being.

How Does It Manifest Itself?
Depression can quickly manifest and begin to have swift and severe consequences to the body. Some of the physical consequences are: compromised immune system, gastrointestinal problems, aches and pains through out the body or a general numbing of the senses. Depressed moods may vary from person to person as some may become very sad or hopeless, others on the other hand may experience abnormal levels of frustration, anger or rage. Further depression symptoms may be loss of concentration, loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities, increased levels of fatigue, changes in weight, changes in appetite or sleep.

Can It Be Treated?
Yes, depression can be treated. People who suffer from depression are not alone and talking with a qualified therapist can have a significant impact on anyone who is suffering from depression. Depression is often misunderstood and if it goes untreated, the consequences can be catastrophic.

How Counselling Can Help
The primary goal in working with depression is help the individual understand why they are depressed, help them to regain control of their life, find emotional regulation so they can reintegrate into a life that is productive and satisfying.
