RWPsychology provide psychological help for Depression in Milperra.

Depression is a serious mental health issue where sadness, low moods or a sense of ’emptiness’ can last weeks, months and sometimes years.

Unfortunately many people who are suffering depression go undiagnosed and untreated. Our psychologists are skilled in being able to identify symptoms, and can provide professional psychological treatment.

There is no single cause for depression. In some individuals, stress such as the loss of a job, unemployment, physical health issues, family problems, the death of a loved one, or the end of a relationship might trigger depression. For other people, there is no obvious cause.

What Are The Symptoms?

  • Sense of sadness or emptiness
  • Low mood for most of the day, nearly every day
  • Loss of interest in almost all activities, even activities usually enjoyed
  • Thoughts of self harm or suicide
  • Thoughts of uselessness, worthlessness, hopelessness or inappropriate guilt
  • Lack of energy
  • Marked increase or decrease in appetite and associated weight loss or weight gain
  • Severe changes in sleep
  • Decreased motivation
  • Difficulty making decisions

Treating Depression

Depression can be treated by modern psychological methods, allowing those who struggle with the condition to lead full, happy, productive lives. At RWPsychology, our psychologists often use a combination of evidence-based approaches to help identify and address factors that might be contributing to your symptoms of depression.

Our Psychologists usually see clients individually, but can also include family members to support treatment where appropriate.

If you or a loved one are in crisis, and need to talk to someone urgently, please call the Mental Health Accessline on 1800 011 511 or Lifeline on 13 11 14.

If you or someone you know is in danger or at risk or harm to themselves or someone else, please head to your nearest emergency department or contact 000 for urgent mental health assistance.
