"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)
