Experts talk about the difference between apathy and depression

(ORDO NEWS) — Psychologists told how to distinguish depression from simple apathy. The first person is unlikely to cope without the help of a specialist.

According to specialist Ivan Karnaukh, depression is a clinical condition. The patient does not want to do anything, he lies all day, his appetite decreases.

Sometimes this condition is confused with a temporary seasonal disturbance. Especially often it manifests itself in the north, as the psychologist says. This is due to the lack of sunny days.

Another psychologist, Elena Perminova, said that the hallmarks of depression are “prolonged sleep, loss of interest in pleasures, reduced communication, reduced emotional background, weakness.”

In addition, there are two types of depression: endogenous – more manifested in the morning, and psychogenic – in the evening.
