In the United States, depression has become the most common mental illness, especially in adults. The reason why the percentage of the affected people continue to increase is that very few people find it necessary to seek help when they feel depressed. Consequently, about 67 adults in every 1000 adults end up suffering its effects every year. Depression happens to anybody regardless of their gender and age. However, it is common in adults especially women. Depression can be treated to the point of experiencing full remission if the depressed take a step of seeking help.
Many factors are contributing to depression. The most common reasons for depression are always personal and relating to the depressed person. Most people suffer depression when they had had a stressful event in their life. For instance, an individual may have undergone some financial constraints or unemployment and end up getting depressed in the process of seeking a solution. The death of a close person, divorce or abuse can also make a person depressed. Most of the issues mainly disturb adults, and that is one reason why depression is common in adults than in young people. Some researchers have also identified family history as a factor that can determine the likelihood of a person getting depressed.
Depression is always accompanied by several disorders including Persistent Depressive Disorder, Postpartum depression, and Major Depressive disorder. The latter is characterized by reduced self-esteem and continuous sadness that is not escapable. Postpartum disorder starts after childbirth with less persisting symptoms compared to Persistent Depressive which may last for two years or more, with its symptoms present every day.
Neurocore is a company that majors in the treatment of psychological and neurological disorders through the use of auditory and visual feedback methods such as biofeedback. Through this program, Neurocore monitors the brain using a movie that trains the brain to function more efficiently and better.
The play is done through positive reinforcement and repetition which pauses momentarily when the brainwaves are not in the balance and plays again when they are back. The monitoring of the brainwaves is done by qEEG sensors that are placed on the scalp. Through this, depression is minimized in the patient’s brain.
