If you have a family history of depression, you have a greater risk of developing this illness.

27 MOOD DISORDERS & ANXIETY Anxiety is a normal response to stress or danger. Anxiety becomes a problem when it is experienced intensely and it persistently interferes with a person s daily life. Depression and anxiety commonly occur together. Not everybody who is anxious is depressed, but most depressed patients have some symptoms of anxiety. When an anxiety disorder is also present, depression is more severe and is more likely to fail to respond to treatment. Anxiety disorders appear to be common in people with bipolar disorder as well.
28 WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO GET HELP? So you can have fun in life! So you can enjoy your family and friends! So you can have better relationships! So you can feel enthusiastic about the future! So you don t have to feel suicidal! So it is easier to stay away from promiscuity, violence, alcohol and illicit drugs, yes. Even marijuana is an illicit drug that can be very harmful for people with mental illnesses.
