The teenage years can be an emotional assault course for all concerned. Parents and their teenage offspring may seem to be at each other's throats. The special name for this stormy time is adolescence. However, recent studies have shown that most teenagers actually like their parents and feel that they get on well with them. So why do so many people find adolescence so difficult? It's a time of rapid physical development and deep emotional changes. These can be exciting, but also confusing and uncomfortable for child and parent alike. In this leaflet you will find information about these changes, the upheavals they can cause, the special problems that arise and ways in which they can be managed.
Depression is an illness that affects both men and women. But people working in mental health services see far fewer men with depression than women with depression. It seems likely that men suffer from depression just as often as women, but that they are less likely to ask for help. This leaflet gives some basic facts about depression in general ? and how it affects men in particular.
Post-Natal Depression (now often referred to as 'PND') means becoming depressed after having a baby. Sometimes this is easy to explain - the baby is unwanted or abnormal. Mostly, though, the depression makes no obvious sense: 'I was so looking forward to having this baby, and now I feel utterly miserable. What's the matter with me?'
Sometimes we may drink to relieve a depressed mood; to 'drown our sorrows.' Occasionally, drinking excessively is a symptom of severe clinical depression. More often it is the other way around and depression is a consequence of excessive drinking. It is important to be clear about the extent to which the depression is causing the excessive drinking or the drinking causing depression.
Depression can be so severe that life hardly feels worth living and sufferers often find that they just cannot cope with things as they used to. Other people may think they have 'given in', but depression of this degree is an illness and needs treatment. It is not a sign of weakness - even powerful personalities can experience deep depression. Winston Churchill called it his 'black dog'.
In manic depressive illness, sufferers experience mood swings that are far beyond what most people ever experience in the course of their lives. These mood swings may be low, as in depression, or high, as in periods when we might feel very elated. These high periods are known as ?manic? phases. Many sufferers have both high and low phases, but some will only experience either depression or mania. A more technical tern used to describe this illness is ?bi-polar affective disorder?. This leaflet will describe both aspects of the disorder, the particular problems they present, ways of coping with them and the range of treatments available. It is a serious condition but, with the right treatment, it is possible to live one?s life without too much interference.
Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness which affects one person in a hundred. It usually develops in the late teens or early twenties, though it sometimes starts in middle age or even much later in life. The earlier it begins, the more potential it has to damage the personality and the ability to lead a normal life. Athough it is treatable, relapses are common, and it may never clear up entirely. It makes working and studying, relating to other people and leading a full, independent life very difficult, and causes families much distress. This leaflet explains what it is like, why it may happen and what to do about it.
