What is depression?

Clinical depression is a significant illness that affects a person’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Clinical depression, in contrast to normal sadness, is chronic, often impairs a person’s capacity to perceive or anticipate pleasure, and considerably impairs everyday functioning. Depression can cause severe impairment, other health-related difficulties, and, in rare circumstances, suicide if left untreated for weeks, months, or years. If left untreated, depression can lead to significant disability, other health-related issues, and, on rare occasions, suicide.

How to manage 

Here are a few tips to manage such psychiatric emergencies of depression:

  1. Be aware of the warning signs
  2. Monitor the patient’s safety needs
  3. Take all suicidal threats or attempts seriously
  4. Remove sharp instruments, ropes, belts etc. from the environment
  5. Do not allow the patient to bolt the door from inside
  6. Never leave the patient alone. If necessary, accompany them to the bathroom.
