Depression

Depression ranks among the most prevalent mental disorders. According to current statistics, an estimated 5-6 million people in Germany grapple with depression.

The symptoms of depression can vary widely from person to person, meaning that not all symptoms are present in every case, and their intensity can differ. Common indicators include persistent feelings of sadness, a loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities, sleep disturbances, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, a lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, and, in severe cases, recurrent thoughts of wanting to end one's life.

Depression can significantly impact various aspects of one's life. It can lead to a noticeable loss of motivation, energy, and focus. Everyday tasks such as work, study, or household responsibilities can become daunting or overwhelming. Interpersonal relationships can also be affected, as the depressive mood may result in withdrawal, social isolation, and difficulties in maintaining connections. Furthermore, depression interacts with the social environment.

 

There are various effective psychotherapeutic approaches to treating depression, which can be highly successful in an outpatient treatment setting.
