Mental health is the individual’s efforts to be in peace with the people around him and the society, to maintain constant balance, order and harmony. There are no people who do not feel sadness, distress, fear, anger, jealousy, and accordingly, do not behave differently than usual.
However, mental health may deteriorate as a result of its transformation into severe condition.
WHAT IS DEPRESSION?
Depression is a state that has biological, psychological and social causes, affecting one’s body, thought and mind. Depression can be overcome slightly, or it can turn into a problem that takes us for a long time. There were times when we were all troubled and sad. Sometimes this continues for a while and we find a cure for things that upset us and bother us. Sometimes our emotions do not pass, and it affects us so much that it becomes very difficult for us to do our daily work. When this happens, it is necessary to seek help by consulting a specialist.
