Depression encompasses numerous negative feelings, including a pervading sense of despondency or sadness. It drains enthusiasm. And anxiety can be an overwhelming wave of distress, making it impossible to relax, or achieve the calm level-headedness that keeps us settled and focused.

Along with bipolar disorder, these emotional and mental disturbances can cause a significant, disruptive vacillation between mania and lethargy. Altogether, they may lead to psychosis or detrimental, delusional thinking.

Depressive episodes can have extensively adverse effects on every aspect of one’s life. It can take the joy out of all the things they usually love. These detrimental mental states can make it hard, seemingly impossible even, to excel at school or work. They can steal your focus, make it hard to concentrate, and stifle creativity.

Interpersonal relationships are commonly put under pressure, threatening to disrupt how we perceive and interact with others. And mood swings or outbursts can arise from nowhere, derailing a productive day and robbing you of the happiness we’re all entitled to.

Numerous causes can produce unhealthy mental states and ways of thinking.

The overall effects are significant.

Individuals may lose their motivation or ability to concentrate and find it hard to think clearly. Racing thoughts or loss of interest impede daily living and can lead to poor decision-making.
