Anxiety disorder is an umbrella term that covers several different forms of a type of common mental disorder, characterized by excessive rumination, worrying, uneasiness, apprehension and fear about future uncertainties either based on real or imagined events, which may affect both physical and psychological health.
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depression, major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and depression may make you feel as if life isn’t worth living.
Psychotherapy helps people with depression understand the behaviors, emotions, and ideas that contribute to his or her depression and identify the life problems or events that contribute to their depression and help them understand, which aspects of those problems they may be able to solve or improve.
