OPP : Depression & Its Solutions

Ever since the financial meltdown in the last quarter of 2008, many people reported to suffer from depression. As a matter of fact, we should not be ignorant, neglect and belittle what depression can inflict upon human kind. For instance, the financial slump which is claimed to be the worst post-war crisis, has caused many homicidal as well as suicidal cases.

Particularly, some people who lost their jobs, suffered greatly from depression and helplessly overpowered by their troubling minds, they also lost their rationality and started killing their family members as the only route to vent their frustration. Almost all the murderers in cases with such similarity eventually had themselves killed.

That's how far depression can lead us to.

Last night, our very own Malay Nutritionist, Pn. Masrisa had thoroughly reminded the audiences about the danger of depression. Furthermore, she had also mentioned all the diseases which relate to depression, such as major depression, dysthemia, atypical depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and etc.

Besides that, Pn. Masrisa pointed out the factors and causes which could lead to the development of depression, namely biological factors, psychological factors and environmental/social factors.

Apart from that, Pn. Masrisa also appeared to be cautious about the medical treatments which are being used in the medical field nowadays. Without her clear explanation, many would not know that medicines which contain St. John's Wort, Valerian and Kava could cause adverse effects to the consumers.

Other than a speech which won a big round of applause, the company also provided a mini quiz for the audiences. The audiences were given a self-assessment form each, and were asked to fill in the answers for each question. This test allowed the audiences to have a better understanding about themselves as far as depression level is concerned.
