  • 1. Popular Reasons why Depression Patients avoid seeking Professional Treatment? Do you think anxiety and depression are simple problems that can be stopped without any intervention? May be but in a great number of people, overlooking symptoms and procrastinating treatment have only fetched no or negative results. Yet, there continues to be a large percentage of people with depression that do not seek professional intervention for a number of reasons. Here are some of the popular reasons why people shirk professional treatment for depression. 1. Social stigma Many people prefer to suffer silent bouts of depression to seeking professional treatment simply because they fear alienation in the society.
  • 2. They feel embarrassed to share their condition with friends and acquaintances because they feel that such symptoms can be associated with some serious taboos. Isolation and deterioration of relationship are often cited as reasons why people do not want to talk about it in public or resort to mediums that can make people around them aware of their condition. 2. Fear of getting started Fear of the unknown as to what they can or cannot expect during the treatment process of anxiety and depression prevents people from seeking help. Most people are unaware of how the treatment methodology is likely to be. A utopian personality associated with depression treatment process makes people think the concept to be alien, strange and sometimes even unnecessary. However, this problem can be brought to a solution by discussing with an expert you are most comfortable with and understanding the nature of treatment. 3. Complexity of the problem People often fail to recognize and understand the severity and complexity of their problem. Most times, many individuals wait to observe more serious and complicated effects before they take a decision on whether or not they want to commence the treatment program. Determining initial signs of depression and working towards putting an end to the problem as early as possible is important to avoid stepping into more serious and challenging cases of anxiety and depression.
  • 3. 4. Resources Time and money are important in treating the problem efficiently. But having said that, there is a popular perception that depression treatment involves exorbitant amounts of money and this is more so because of popular ads talking about celebrity depression treatment sessions. But high price does not necessarily guarantee quality. Invest time in identifying the right centers for depression that doesn’t extract loads of your money but can equip you to handle depression confidently.
