Depression Brochure
Depression is defined as a collapse of the basal mood, with an increase of unpleasant, sad and
threatening experiences. The specific components of depression are slow thinking, psychomotor
sluggishness and many somatic auxiliary symptoms such as loss of vital emotions, feeling empty
and anxious, gray conceptual contents, insomnia, and loss of interest in daily activities (Chand &
Arif, 2019). Depression is today considered by many to be a disease of civilization, because of
intense psycho-emotional experiences and exaggerated demands. This form is known as
depression of exhaustion. Because of the high prevalence of this condition in the latest years, the
brochure which I chose from the Speak Up website to review was the one in regard to
Summary of Brochure
The brochure focuses on offering major information about depression and the way patients could
seek for help. It starts by enumerating the major signs, such as loss of appetite, fatigability,
insomnia, desire to be alone, irritability and difficulty of making a decision. The next part
consists of enumerating risks groups such as those who have a familial history of depression,
those who follow a specific type of treatment, and those who have a serious health condition or
people who went through a traumatic event. It continues by encouraging the patient who suffers
from these symptoms to seek help as soon as possible because if depression is left untreated it
can lead to serious consequences. One of the major elements discussed in the brochure is the
importance of therapy. It even gives the reader a guide of questions, which they could ask their
physician before this form of treatment. The brochure ends by giving advice in regard to things
Depression Brochure
which can diminish the effect of depression such as following the treatment, trying to stick to the
daily routine, join support groups and practice relaxation exercises. (Speak Up, 2018)
Evaluation of Brochure
The brochure includes most of the essential information regarding this pathology. Even so, many
of the information tends to be very general and can be characteristics to simply having a bad day.
A better delimitation from an acute phase should be done. One of the things I would focus more
on would be the statistics. The brochure doesn’t focus too much on making the reader feel like
they are not the only one facing this pathology. Based on the World Health Organization
website, depression is one of the most common mental disorders, which affects approximately
300 million people. That means that approximately 5% of the people around the world suffer
from those pathology. If we compare it to all the psychiatric cases, it represents around 60% of
the diagnosis given by the psychiatrist to their patients. The brochure fails focusing on the major
complication of depression which is suicide. Based on the information provided in the text, this
very serious matter is treated superficially. It is believed that approximately 800.000 people die
each year because of suicide which makes it the second leading cause of death in 15-29 years’
age groups (WHO, 2018). They should also specify that this condition is characterized by
MOTN- middle of the night insomnia. This means that patients manage to fall asleep but tend to
wake up at 3-4 am and find it hard to fall asleep from that moment (Protheroe, Estacio & Saidy,
2015). Even so, one of the great things about this brochure is that it uses simple language without
trying to impress with medical terms. This is an important element because everyone who reads
it can understand. During my year as a student, I read many brochures which I found hard or
close to impossible to be ready by someone who does not have a background in medicine. From
Depression Brochure
my point of view, it is essential to focus on the language whi is used as we are referring to
general public.
Without any doubts, depression represents the point of interest for all the mental help programs.
This is due to a high risk of suicide and other major consequences if not treated at the right time.
Because of the fact that it is frequently not recognized or it is underestimated, many
organizations focus on providing information on how to correctly suspect the diagnosis and what
measures should be taken for both the benefit of the patients and also of the people surrounding
them. Depression is no longer an untreatable disease which puts a lifetime mark on the patient.
There are a variety of psychotherapy techniques which improves the quality of life of the patient
until they reach a point during which they can start enjoying life again. In the end, it is important
to continue sending a message through all means such as it was the case of the brochure
discussed in this review.
