|Mental Depression is a mood state that goes beyond temporarily feeling sad or blue. It is a serious medical illness that affects one's thoughts, feelings, behavior, mood and physical health. Mental Depression is a life-long condition in which periods of wellness alternate with recurrences of illness. The symptoms of Mental Depression usually represent a significant change in how a person functions. Sometimes individuals become so discouraged and hopeless that death seems preferable to life. These feelings can lead to suicidal ideation, attempts and death by suicide. It can be difficult to detect from the outside looking in, but for those who experience Mental Depression, it is disruptive in a multitude of ways.
International Journal of Emergency Mental Health and Human Resilience is the top journal in Mental Depression. The journal presents an education series providing updates relevant to emergency mental health, as well as, an ongoing annotated research review of relevant papers published elsewhere thus making the Journal a unique and even more valuable reference resource.
