SUN Behavioral Health Kentucky Releases Information About Crippling Depression

Erlanger, KY: SUN Behavioral Kentucky, located in Erlanger, Kentucky, recently released information about the topic of crippling depression in a detailed article published on their website. It delves into the perceptions of crippling depression and also gives a more clinical definition for that disorder.

“Although some depression can feel crippling and can actually make [a person] feel as if [it is impossible to] do anything...the term ‘crippling depression’ is really a different way to talk about clinical depression,” the blog post states.

What is crippling depression?

Among other things, the article details some of the signs and symptoms that may be present when a person is currently struggling with the disorder. This offers a unique guide to identifying a scenario where a loved one may need help. Some of these signs and symptoms are intense feelings of sadness and/or hopelessness, irritability and/or frustration, feelings of rage and/or outbursts of anger, and more.

SUN Behavioral Kentucky also broaches the topic of possible causes for “crippling depression,” though also focus on the complexity of the disorder.

“It’s not a satisfactory answer, but it’s the truth: there is no one thing that causes clinical depression,” the article states. “As reported by Harvard Medical School, it’s ‘more complex’ than one chemical imbalance within the brain, whether that’s too much or too little of something that is naturally occurring in [the body.]”

A significant focus of the post details the ways in which a person can recover from “crippling depression.” A key step is reaching out for help, which SUN Behavioral Kentucky focuses on as something possible thanks to the support of loved ones.
