    " How can a Carer help and support a person suffering from depression? Lack of hope is the most common symptom that anyone suffering from depression would encounter. It is the job of the Caregiver to help the patient develop a positive outlook and hope in their lives. They need to be assured that there is a purpose of their life and a number of things can be done which can help them find a new meaning in life. The Carer also must not allow their own frustrations with the situation to show as then the feeling of guilt will surface and this will be detrimental to recovery. Here are some ways in which a Carer can help someone suffering from mental health depression: 1. Understand Depression 2. Getting the Right Treatment For Depression 3. Emotional Support 4. Separate the Illness from the Person 5. Spend Time With Them" (Dennan, 2011) To view the full article please click on the link below👇🏽 Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/6476835

Mild problems are common and the person can be helped through understanding and support. More severe mental health disorders, such as major depression, are less common and pose more challenges. Effective carer checklist An effective carer check list may look like this: Ensure the condition is properly diagnosed. Know and establish the professional support network. Access the relevant information about how best to behave and what to expect. Look after yourself and know where to find support for your needs. Know the danger signals and how to respond."
