Those who have struggled with depression may not appear to have any problems out of the ordinary from an outsider’s perspective. People dealing with depression who seem “normal” may be in a stage of “high-functioning” depression. This is not an official diagnosis, but it can accurately describe many people’s situations. Learning more about it is the first step towards recovery. If you or a loved one have any concerning symptoms or would like to learn more about mental health symptoms, reach out to Viewpoint Dual Recovery in Prescott, Arizona. Our team of caring mental health specialists is here to help. Reach out today online or call 855.746.3633 to learn more about depression treatment we offer.
Addressing High-Functioning Depression
Those who deal with depression deal with a spectrum of symptoms. The symptoms themselves vary, along with the severity of the symptoms. People may still maintain their jobs, daily routines, and family lives. Symptoms of depression can be subtle to those who aren’t aware. It may seem like someone is just having a string of bad days, or maybe they’re just “difficult.” Unfortunately, this perception causes many people to want to avoid trying to learn more. Here are some signs that it’s time to ask for help:
- Excessive feelings of guilt, anger, and agitation
- Negative self-talk
- Heightened reactions to others’ behavior
- Low self-confidence
- Self-destructive habits, including drinking or drug use
If someone you know is showing concerning behaviors, it is key to remain calm and remember that a good therapist can make a world of difference. Due to excessive shame and guilt that the person may feel, it’s essential to approach the situation with care. Fortunately, there are many experienced and compassionate specialists who are here to assist you. Take the time today to find out who in your area can provide you and your loved ones with the care you need.
