Smiling Depression: As Difficult To Understand As It Is To Solve

We may see many smiling faces around us, but mostly never get to know the reality behind those smiles

Have you heard of smiling depression? According to a report by Healthline, smiling depression is also a type of depression, due to which the person suffering from inside appears to be happy or satisfied from outside. Surprisingly, it has not been included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Depression is becoming a common problem. We would not know everyday how many such faces we see around us, who are always seen smiling, but mostly never get to know the reality behind those smiles.

Symptoms of Smiling Depression

Depression affects everyone differently and can have many symptoms like:

  • Feeling down and depressed
  • Loss of confidence
  • Changes in appetite, weight, and sleep
  • Loss of interest in one's hobby

A person with smiling depression may experience some or all of these, but may not show most or all of these symptoms in public.

How to deal with this?

According to WHO, smiling depression shows symptoms opposite or different from classic depression, due to which it is difficult to identify or diagnose. The problem is also difficult to solve because many people do not even know they are depressed or simply do not want to seek help.

If you feel that someone around you is in the grip of depression, then try to help them as soon as possible. The most important thing is that it is very important to take the advice of doctors in this situation.
