How to Identify Signs of Depression : Self Injury: Signs of Depression

Hello. My name is Leslie Moselle and I’m from
Tampa, Florida. And, on behalf of Expert Village, these are the signs of depression. For a doctor
or other health professional to diagnose depression, most of the following signs and symptoms must
be present for at least two weeks. Self-Injury: Some people who have difficulty talking about
their feelings, may express their emotional tension, physical discomfort, pain, and low
self-esteem with self-destructive behaviors such as cutting, self-abuse, self-harm and
self-mutilation. Forms and severity of this self-injury can vary, although the most commonly
seen are cutting, burning and head-banging. Other forms of self-destructive behavior include
carving, scratching, branding, marking, biting, bruising, and hitting. If you are injuring
yourself or know someone who is, please seek help immediately. This is obviously a sign
of someone who is suffering from depression.
