So this week is Mental Health Awareness Week, and my thoughts have been turning to those of us, probably all of us, who have found ourselves trying to support somebody we care about deeply who isn’t in the greatest of places.

There’s quite a bit of publicity around depression currently, with Prince Harry “coming out” as having sought counselling. But what exactly is depression?
Medically speaking, the criteria for what constitutes depression are in the DSM-V, where somebody is meant to have had at least five out of nine specific symptoms, nearly every day for a minimum of two weeks. The symptoms are quite varied, with some very clear cut, such as wanting to kill oneself or more than 5% weight change, whilst others are more subjective such as change in concentration, being irritable or decreased interest in most activities. That’s the sort of thing a GP or psychiatrist is assessing against as to whether somebody has depression, and whether to prescribe medication.

Recently it was #WorldMentalHealthDay so everyone was raising awareness of mental health issues, places to seek help etc. As it is a passion of mine to help people through depression, I created this video to talk about depression and why it is perfectly ok to feel sad when going through this.

In the modern day life can be very stressful now due to demanding jobs, finances, relationships plus many more I am sure you can think of. Because of this people live in a very negative mind frame due to constant worry. This can cause major health issues and stress is a main cause of heart and lung issues, gastro problems such as IBS and ceiliacs disease and also mental health problems such as depression. A negative mind always manages to overpower a positive one and to give you an example if someone told you 10 things they liked about you and 1 thing they don't like I can guarantee all you would focus on is that 1 negative comment, am I right?
