Coping with Depression

Coping with Depression from Grief or Bereavement

Coping with Depression | Mental Illness From Grief & Mourning Depression after bereavement is very common. A study by Zisook in 1993 looked at the rate of depression in late-life widows. The results showed that 16 per cent of them had depression 13 months after bereavement. About 15 percent of people will have a bout of major depression at some point in their lives.

The type of depression after a death is often called reactive depression as it is response to an event. Depression is more than feeling a bit sad or blue. It is a real illness that has a range of symptoms including physical manifestations such as headaches and raised blood pressure as well as emotional feelings such as being unable to function on a day to day level.

Depression is very treatable and the first step is identifying whether you have depression. There are common symptoms of depression:

Psychological symptoms:
  • continuous low / blue mood or sadness.
  • feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.
  • low self-esteem.

Anti-depressants are not addictive but if you choose to come off them it is best to do so in a controlled way.

  • Counselling. This is when you tend to work one on one with a counsellor and they help you to talk through your feelings. Counselling isn’t an overnight remedy. You need to find a counsellor who you trust and can talk openly with.
