Depression, the secret we share | Andrew Solomon
 
29:22
"The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment." In a talk equal parts eloquent and devastating, writer Andrew Solomon takes you to the darkest corners of his mind during the years he battled depression. That led him to an eye-opening journey across the world to interview others with depression -- only to discover that, to his surprise, the more he talked, the more people wanted to tell their own stories.

Having feelings isn't a sign of weakness -- they mean we're human, says producer and activist Nikki Webber Allen.

Depression is the number one disability worldwide, yet in most western cultures at least it is rarely acknowledged. Derick Fiedler, who grew up in the “4th most depressed city in the country” Erie, Pennsylvania, believes sharing his own battle with mental illness could be an important first step in breaking down stigmas of mental illness and at the same time making the discussion a more casual conversation in society. Derick believes the we have “blurred the lines between what is someone's character and what is a disease and as a result we have created stigmas that are preventing people from getting the help they need”. Derick is an aspiring public speaker and writer. He continues to speak of mental health awareness on his blog theparadigmjournals.com Derick Fiedler is an Erie, PA native and 2014 Slippery Rock University graduate with a degree in Environmental Studies. While earning his degree he also ran on the collegiate track team. A high and long jumper turned decathlete. He won conference championships his junior year and was ranked 16th in the nation.

In his TEDx talk Derick would like to bring awareness to both those who do and do not suffer from mental health issues alike.

Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression | Johann Hari | RSA Replay
 
58:26
One in four people in Britain is suffering from depression or anxiety in any given year – but have we been taught correctly about its causes? Bestselling author Johann Hari’s new book is radically changing what we have been told on the subject. Hari uses his social science training to investigate the causes of depression and anxiety – and discovers the cutting edge science that reveals the lack of evidence for the spontaneous chemical imbalance in our brains theory.

The one factor causing depression and anxiety in the workplace | Johann Hari
 
04:39
Read more at BigThink.com: Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink I learned about nine causes of depression and anxiety, for which there’s scientific evidence with different sets of solutions. But I’ll just give you a very quick example of one. I noticed that lots of people I know who were depressed and anxious. Their depression and anxiety focuses around their work. So I started looking at, well, how do people feel about their work? What’s going on here? Gallup did the most detailed study that’s ever been done on this. What they found is 13 percent of us like our work most of the time. Sixty-three percent of us are what they called “sleepwalking” through out work. We don’t like it. We don’t hate it. We tolerate it. Twenty-four percent of us hate out jobs. If you think about that 87 percent of people in our culture don’t like the thing they’re doing most of the time. They did send their first work email at 7:48 a.m. and clock off at 7:15 p.m. on average. Most of us don’t want to be doing it. Could this have a relationship to our mental health? I started looking for the best evidence, and I discovered an amazing Australian social scientist called Michael Marmot who I got to know who discovered, the story of how he discovered it is amazing, but I’ll give you the headline. He discovered the key factor that makes us depressed and anxious at work: If you go to work and you feel controlled, you feel you have few or limited choices you are significantly more likely to become depressed or actually even more likely to have a stress-related heart attack. And this is because of one of the things that connects so many of the causes of depression and anxiety I learned about. Everyone watching this knows that you have natural physical needs, right. You need food. You need water. You need shelter. You need clean air. If I took them away from you, you would be in trouble real fast, right. There’s equally strong evidence that we have natural psychological needs. You’ve got to feel you belong; You’ve got to feel your life has meaning and purpose; You’ve got to feel that people see you and value you; You’ve got to feel you’ve got a future that makes sense. And if human beings are deprived of those psychological needs they will experience extreme forms of distress. Our culture is good at lots of things. We’re getting less and less good at meeting people’s deep underlying psychological needs. And this is one of the key factors why depression is rising. And that opens, just to finish the point about what that opens up, a very different way of thinking about how we solve these problems, right. So if control at work is one of the drivers of this depression and anxiety epidemic so I think well what would be an antidepressant for that, right. What would solve that? In Baltimore I met a woman called Meredith Keogh as part of an amazing transformation. Meredith used to go to bed every Sunday night just sick with anxiety. She had an office job. It wasn’t the worst office job in the world, she wasn’t being bullied, but she couldn’t bear the thought that this monotony was going to be the next 40 years of her life, most of her life. And one day Meredith did an experiment with her husband Josh. Josh had worked in bike stores since he was a teenager. Again, it’s insecure, controlled work, as you can imagine. And one day Josh and his friends in the bike store just asked themselves: what does out boss actually do? They liked that boss. He wasn’t a particularly bad guy, but they thought, “Well, we fix all the bikes.” They didn’t like this feeling of having a boss. They decided to do something different. So Meredith quit her job. Josh and his friends quit their jobs. They set up a bike store that works on a different, older principle. It’s a democratic cooperative, not a corporation. So the way it works is there is no boss. They take the decisions together democratically by voting. They share out the good tasks and the bad tasks. They share the profits. And one of the things that was so interesting to me going there which is completely in line with Professor Marmot’s findings is how many of them talked about how depressed and anxious they’d been when they worked in a controlled environment and they weren’t depressed and anxious now. Now it’s important to say: it’s not like they quit their jobs fixing bikes and went to become like Beyoncé’s backup singers, right? They fixed bikes before, they fixed bikes now. But they dealt with the factor that causes depression and anxiety.

5 Signs Of Depression That Should Never Be Ignored
 
09:07
These are the signs of depression that should never be ignored. It’s important to remember that depression is a brain illness that can be fatal if it’s not treated properly. Every year, depression affects more than 16 million Americans. Mental health is starting to get the recognition that it deserves, but there is still more work to be done. According to statistics, only 35.3% of Americans who are suffering from depression seek help. This is a major concern because it is extremely tough to deal with depression on your own. #MentalHealth #Depression #Depressed Timestamps: 1. Wanting to be alone: 2. Issues with sleeping: 3. Lack of energy: 4. Distractions: 5. Bad habits: Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music Summary: Here are the top habits someone with depression will develop and go through. 1. Wanting to be alone: If you are suffering from depression, you probably don’t like leaving your house/room. You want to be alone with your thoughts and in most cases want to feel sorry for yourself without anyone bothering you. Many people who suffer from depression just want to spend their time alone. They may completely give up on communicating with others. They will isolate themselves and give up on a daily routine. They may ignore calls, stop showing up to work, stop going to school, stop paying bills, the list goes on. 2. Issues with sleeping: People who are depressed tend to have trouble sleeping. Not only does this affect their physical well being, but it also significantly affects their mental well being. People who are depressed will pretend that they’re sleeping so no one will bother them, but they end up staying up all night and struggle to fall asleep because their mind is constantly racing with negative thoughts. 3. Lack of energy: Someone who suffers from depression will constantly cancel plans and appointments. They don’t have the energy or the desire to do anything. They just want to be left alone. Those suffering from depression may also sleep on the couch and binge watch television shows. Depression can cause people to become lazy, which translates into procrastination. They will avoid chores and stop taking care of their appearance. Because people with depression lack energy, they may begin to avoid doing regular daily tasks like cooking. There is nothing tastier than a home cooked meal, but because depression is extremely draining, people suffering from it will often buy takeout because they lack the energy and motivation to cook. In addition to this, people who suffer from depression sometimes do not even enjoy the taste of food, says WebMD. This doesn’t mean that the food tastes bad; it means that they’re so stressed about so many issues that they can’t enjoy their food. They may also start eating less or lose their appetite altogether. 4. Distractions: People who are depressed tend to look for distractions to help keep their minds occupied. This can range from listening to music, to cleaning, to even exercising. It’s never a bad thing to be addicted to cleaning. Some people suffering from depression will clean anything and everything, says WebMD. It’s a good distraction and helps them focus on something more positive instead of something negative. Running also helps many people dealing with depression. It gives them a sense of accomplishment, which is one of the main symptoms of depression - that they don’t feel that they have accomplished anything in life. Music can also be a telltale sign of someone’s mood. Someone suffering from depression may enjoy old rock and roll, but the second they develop a depressive episode, they may enjoy listening to something more soft and relatable to their situation. 5. Bad habits: Although some distractions can be good for a depressed person, there are also certain distractions which can lead to unhealthy habits. One example is picking skin until marks are left. Some people get satisfaction when they hurt themselves, which needs to be dealt with immediately before it becomes life-threatening. Some people will also suffer from other disorders that contribute to their depression. For example, some people will also suffer from trichotillomania, which is the disorder where the person will keep pulling their hair. After they pull it out, they will get a sense of relief. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Bestie : https://goo.gl/tUqro6 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bestieinc/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What the best science really says about depression | Johann Hari
 
05:43
For almost the past 100 years, mental health professionals have told us that that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. However, there's a much more realistic theory that depression happens due to an imbalance happening outside of your cranium. New York Times journalist Johann Hari believes that depression these days stem from societal issues. Johann offers some staggering statistics showing that antidepressants seem to be doing much more harm than good — among them, that one out of every four middle-aged women in the United States is taking a chemical antidepressant in any given year. If we want to get rid of modern-day depression, he says, we have to change society. Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/johann-hari-the-best-science-says-depression-is-a-social-ill-not-an-individual-flaw Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink I kept learning intellectually about what causes depression and anxiety. And that it’s much deeper than the story I’d been told by my doctor—that it’s just a missing chemical in your brain. But I think it really emotionally fell into place when I went and met an incredible South African psychiatrist called Derek Summerfield. So Derek was in Cambodia when chemical antidepressants were first introduced there. And the Cambodian doctors didn’t know what they were, right? They’d never heard of it. So he explained it to them and they said, “Oh, we don’t need them. We’ve already got antidepressants.” And Derek said what do you mean? He thought they were going to talk about some kind of herbal remedy or something. Instead they told him a story. There was a farmer in their community who one day, a rice farmer, who one day had stood on a landmine and had his leg blown off. And so they gave him an artificial limb and he went back to work in the fields. But it’s apparently very painful to work in water when you’ve got an artificial limb. And I imagine it was quite traumatic—He’s going back to the fields where he was blown up. And he started crying all day. He didn’t want to get out of bed. Classic depression, right? And so they said to Derek, “Well we gave him an antidepressant.” Derek said what did you do? They explained that they sat with him, they listened to his problems, they realized that his pain made sense. He was depressed for perfectly good reasons. They figured if we bought him a cow he could become a dairy farmer then he wouldn’t be so depressed. They bought him a cow. Within a few weeks his crying stopped, he felt fine. They said to Derek, “You see, Doctor, that cow was an antidepressant.” Now if you’ve been raised to think about depression the way that we’ve been indoctrinated to, that it’s just the result of – there are real biological factors but it’s just the result of a chemical imbalance in your brain—that sounds like a joke, a bad joke. They gave the guy a cow as an antidepressant and he stopped being depressed? But what those Cambodian doctors knew intuitively is what the World Health Organization has been trying to tell us for years. Depression is a response to things going wrong deep in our lives and our environments. Our pain makes sense. As the World Health Organization put it, mental health is produced socially. It’s a social indicator. It requires social as well as individual solutions. It requires social change, right? Now that is a very different way of thinking about depression and anxiety but it happens to fit with the best scientific evidence. And it really required me to reassess how I’d felt about my own pain and how I tried to deal it unsuccessfully and open up a whole different way of responding to my depression and anxiety that worked for me. And I think as the World Health Organization says and the UN says, if we talk less about chemical imbalances and more about power imbalances we will get more at the heart of depression and anxiety and we’ll find better solutions. This was a—this was such a personal and difficult journey for me. There were these two mysteries that were really kind of haunting me, and it’s a sign of how afraid I was to look into them. I wanted to start doing this seven years ago and I figured it would actually be easier to do a book that required me to go and spend time with the hitmen for the Mexican drug cartels instead, which I then did. And the first was: why was I still depressed? I’d gone to my doctor when I was a teenager and I’d explained I had this feeling like pain was kind of leaking out of me. I didn’t understand it. I couldn’t regulate it. I was very afraid of it. I was very ashamed of it.
