DEPRESSION AND BIPOLAR DISORDER

Whether you are dealing with a major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder, Montfort Renaissance provides a team of professionals who will offer you their assistance.

Depression

A major depressive disorder, usually just called “depression”, is different from the “blues”. Someone experiencing depression is grappling with feelings of profound despair over an extended period of time. Almost every aspect of their life can be affected, including their emotions, physical health, relationships and work. For people with depression, it does not feel like there is a “light at the end of the tunnel” — there is just a long, dark tunnel.

Bipolar Disorder

In addition to feelings of depression, someone with bipolar disorder also has episodes of mania. When people are experiencing manic periods, they exhibit symptoms that include:

  • Extreme optimism, euphoria and feelings of grandeur
  • Rapid, racing thoughts and hyperactivity
  • A decreased need for sleep
  • Increased irritability
  • Impulsiveness and possibly reckless behaviour
