For many, depression creeps in.as the Yuletide season draws near, Nearly 17 million American adults and 2 million teens live with major depression independent of the pressure of the Holiday season. Commercialization of Thanksgiving, Hanukah and Christmas,romanticizing of the “Happy Family” and the bombardment by the media of images of smiling families and friends can push some people over the edge. Stress and anxiety of the holiday season—especially during the months of November and December-cause some to experience loneliness and a lack of fulfillment which evolves into depression.
So what is to be done to prevent"Holiday-induced depression"? Consider that “depression” is the spiritual equivalent to cancer that grows from within and it changes thinking and sense of well-being slowly and nearly imperceptibly, metastasizing to all parts of our being. Therefore careful planning is necessary to build your immunityagainst "Depression".
Start now designing what makes you happy during the holiday season; don’t just go with the flow and don’t privatize your pain. If you hate office parties; Don’t go to office parties: schedule a movie date with yourself or with a friend instead. Schedule a visit to a senior citizen residence facility or an orphanage or a local school and provide light refreshments and come with your camera and take pictures of the residents to be presented as gifts to the residents. Make yourself a “gift” to someone… spend some time doing something you seldom take time to do.Do something that is pleasant and memorable for you; start a tradition and reflect on what “gift-giving” is meant to be.

An increase in the rate of suicides around the holidays is unfortunate myth, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In fact, the month of December actually boasts the lowest rate of suicides for the entire year.
It seems that the media has perpetuated this holiday suicide myth, according to The Annenberg Public Policy Center. Researchers from the center analyzed articles over the last 10 years and found that 40% of the articles continued to report the incorrect myth, even though national statistics clearly show the opposite trend.
It is important to remember that while suicide rates may be lower during the holiday months, suicides in children still occur. If you believe that your child is suicidal or thinking about harming herself, it is important to seek immediate treatment.

Depression affects 14.8 million people over the age of 18 in America, and as many as 1 in 12 of the U.S.'s teenagers. This week we take a look at this disease and effective ways to combat it. Depression does not have to rob anyone of life - let's look at ways to fight back. This week's episode features music by Myxx, Evanescence, Drake, and more.
Vanity Fair magazine featured an article on the untimely death by suicide of a beloved aesthetic industry icon, Dr. Fredric Brandt. While many have speculated about what caused such a renowned, successful and loved physician to take his own life, the truth will most likely never be known. One thing we do know is depression among medical professionals is higher than in most other industries, and according to Psychology Today magazine some physicians are even making career changes. Doctors enter the medical profession to treat unhealthy patients, however, whether it’s the long hours, the lack of gratitude, the low pay, or other life traumas including divorce, family stressors or non-existent personal life, many medical professionals are becoming unhealthy themselves. As Dr. Brandt is not the first aesthetic surgeon to commit suicide in recent years, the Aesthetic Insider Show brings you this exclusive interview with Carla Lundblade, MS LPC NCC, a Beverly Hills Licensed Clinical Therapist, in the hopes of shining a spotlight on this very serious issue. Known as the "911 Celebrity Therapist," Carla provides a full spectrum of focused psychology and counseling services. You can learn more at www.carlalundblade.com.

Tonight I want to talk about prepper depression. Are you suffering? Have you suffered? More importantly what do you do to cope with it? There are moments in my own life when I get down into a hole because the future looks so bleak. I get afraid for my children and their children. I want recovery and success but I also understand that before that can really happen we have to have some growing pains. Its easy to pretend like nothing phases you and life is all coming up roses but if you are in the preparedness world and you make it your business to understand and mitigate threats than you better have a method to blow off steam. Otherwise you could wind up on the news as one of these crazy mass shooters who cracked under the pressure of life.
