Depression Counselling Gold Coast

Depression can take hold for a number of different reasons. It can occur due to a genetic or biological predisposition in which the condition develops and may also be triggered if you are exposed to particularly stressful circumstances and traumatic events or environments. Whatever the reason is for a state of depression, the emotional distress it brings can feel like a huge weight upon your shoulders. You are not alone. The World Health Organisation (WHO) considers depression one of the leading contributors to global burden of disease and disability and is a widely common mental health condition.
