Depression seldom gets better without treatment and may get worse. Help the person you care about recognize the symptoms of depression and get treatment.

Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad, but these feelings are usually fleeting and pass within a couple of days.

When a person has clinical depression it interferes with daily life, normal functioning, and causes pain for both the person with the disorder and those who care about him/her.

Depression is more than just feeling upset or sad. It’s not a character flaw or a sign of personal weakness. Just like you can’t “wish away” diabetes, heart disease, you can’t make depression go away by trying to “snap out of it.”

A person may be clinically depressed if, for more than 2 weeks, they experience some of the symptoms listed below:

  • Persistent sad, down, miserable or “empty” feeling
  • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable
  • Reduced self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Feelings of guilt and worthlessness
  • Bleak and pessimistic view of the future
  • Ideas or acts of self-harm or suicide
  • Insomnia, early morning wakefulness or excessive sleeping
  • Disturbed appetite and increase or decrease in weight
  • Decreased libido
  • Reduced energy leading to fatigue and diminished activity
  • Reduced concentration and memory

Dr Peter Eide specialises in psychological treatment for men with depression in their 30′s, 40′s and 50′s.  Although he has completed his studies Peter continues to be involved in academia as he is the principle researcher of a study on depression and exercise.  Unlike other psychologists he has been working as a psychologist for many years and is not just out of university. As a male psychologist he is in a position to understand many of the issues men face in their day-to-day struggles.

Peter has completed a PhD at the Brain Sciences Institute (Swinburne University of Technology) exploring cognitive processes, personality profile and brain imaging in patients with depression. He has also completed an undergraduate degree, Bachelor of Applied Science co-majoring in Psychology and Psychophysiology.

Treatment is not in a ‘home/office’ but discreetly located within a business centre with no signs outside indicating that you are entering a psychologist’s office.  The office is in a convenient location close to Melbourne CBD just a few minutes drive north, with ample parking.
