    Endogenous and Exogenous are the two types of depression. Exogenous is caused by external situations (death in the family, divorce, etc.). This type of depression is less dangerous than endogenous. Endogenous comes out of the blue with no clear cause. A person suffering from this type of depression may need to see professional help coming out of it.

    All people should have knowledge of this, if it were possible. I am getting valuable information from this Mental Health Studies course!

    Good work practice should begin or continue at the orientation point in the process. Newbies should be encouraged and schooled on effective and efficient ways of keeping mind, body and spirit healthy during one's work life. Each aspect of self being healthy and working together in harmony makes for a good employee. The newbie needs information on using lunchtime wisely for work rest, short walks, healthy eating, water drinking and communicating face to face with other persons in and out of the workplace which will indicate they are making an effort to begin building support relationships in the work place. Often times they isolate themselves on the phone and in the assign work position then wonders why no one knows or cares about them. They must bring it to get it!

    Fantastic unit on how to ask questions to establish which sort of depression a person actually has. If the person has Endogenous depression (without an external cause) when they go to the doctors would they automatically be tested for a nutrient deficiency, before their doctor refers them for therapy or prescribes a medication?

    More often there seems to be a precipitating event for depression. It is important that we recognize the signs of depression and refer people to professionals for help. Not all types of depression need drug therapy as some maybe situational, in which the situation can be changed, or better coping habits developed.

    Very interesting facts about the medication category breakdown. Question: Where does the drug ATIVAN fall into? I know folks that were prescribed this drug and it had profound effects on them. Also, it hurts me to discover that the drug Ritalin is being prescribed to children here in the US in high proportions due to the mislabeling of them for ADHD. All these drugs have effects.

    My best friend has suffered from depression ever since I've known her. I got thrown head first into the world of mental illness to the point I was the one talking her out of her taking her life. I was 15 and she was 14. I got to see first hand how the anti depressions worked and how they helped her but sometimes people need support to even get to that step. Though I'm glad to say at the age of 16 she's okay and my days of worrying over her are over.
