Major Depressive Episode After Event | Treatment in Long Island
For many, depression is a constant struggle that has lasted for years and requires constant management. For others, depression is caused by an event or change. These events, known medically as “major depressive episodes,” cause symptoms of depression that can last for weeks and develop into a long term problem, but are due to a recent struggle or event that has impacted your life.
Depression is often so much more than single event. But when you’ve found that you’ve gone through some type of significant life change and it has triggered feelings of depression that are difficult to control, it often helps to talk to someone with experience in treating depression and addressing your individual struggles.
Treatment for Depressive Events with Dr. Marc Shulman
Every life can have challenges, and sometimes those challenges can feel very difficult to overcome. I’ve worked with many people that are struggling with what feels like a life altering event, including:
Death of a Loved One
Lost Job or Bankruptcy
Yet there is no “right” or “wrong” event. Some people experience severe depression after a fight, or a new baby, or a move – all because the event triggered something inside of them that made them feel empty, sad, or listless.
There is no wrong reason to get help. But it is often important to get that help, because while a single event doesn’t necessarily mean a person has depression, those that are struggling can develop trouble with coping, issues with future relationships, and much more.
I have been a depression therapist in Long Island for many years, and use an approach called Dynamic Experiential Learning to address depression related challenges. It’s my goal to get to know you as a person, so that together we can address the issues you’re struggling with and come up with actions and solutions that will help you not only now – but in years to come as well.
