Biological Emotional Cause of Clinical Depression

A clinical mental illness would be diagnosed as a major depression with symptoms of excess sleepiness, irritability, lack of appetite, melancholia and violent outbursts. Their could be a secondary diagnosis of this mental illness. The secondary diagonosis would indicate the type of personality disorder that has manifested in the mind's attempt to deal with the biological depression that could be caused by circumstances as well as other people.

A clinical mental illness would be  diagnosed as a major depression with symptoms of excess sleepiness,  irritability, lack of appetite, melancholia and violent outbursts.  Their  could be a secondary diagnosis of this mental illness could be due to foreign  substances in the system like alcohol or drug abuse.  A secondary diagnosis to a mental illness  is typical if there is also a personality disorder like an identity disorder or  a situational problem that is generating the symptoms of mental illness.

A  waiting period of six months is usually considered normal following a diagnosis  of mental illness.  During that time, the secondary cause might be remedied  or the primary diagnosis of the mental disorder would stand and be treated by a  psychiatrist as a, basically, biological disorder. It is in making a  diagnosis of depression that clinicians find themselves debating whether a  secondary diagnosis is justifiable in helping the mentally ill person.

  Making a diagnosis of clinical depression is  labelling the individual as mentally ill and treatable by the medical profession  or psychiatrists as a biological disorder.  What is often discovered by  clinicians is that change of environment can change a diagnosis like a major  depression to occasional fits of melancholia that do not fall in the category of  a bipolar depression.  For example, severe stuttering can suddenly  disappear if the victim moves away from family and friends and has infrequent  contact with them.

That is not to say that a diagnosed depressed  individual should be left untreated if he shows signs of a self-destructive  nature or as perceived appears to show signs of being a danger to himself and to  others.  If that is the case, the depressed individual needs to be assessed  by a psychiatrist who will prescribed psychotropic medication  based entirely on the clinical diagnosis. The mental pain of the depressed  person is often ignored by him and seen as a justifiable reaction to the world  around him.  The weather might be rainy which is deliberately trying to  make him feel bad that he is not as smart as his sister.

  His wife bought  two dozens mini doughnuts because she is trying to let him know that he needs to lose weight. It is, actually, the  perception of the person who is clinically diagnosed that is accentuating the  frozen state of emotions clinically observed as depression.  Some  people are frightened of getting started on psychiatric drugs.   But, it they are self-medicating on alcohol or on street drugs, they need to be  hospitalized and the substitution of psychiatric drugs for their abuse needs to  be done if they are to be helped with their emotional state of misfiring neurons  known also as a clinical mental illness or a major depression.  The problem  is sometimes getting through to the depressed person that his world is not bound  by his perceptions as he is or seems to think it is.
