What is the Depression and Anger Worksheet about?
Depression, also known as Major Depressive Disorder (MDP) is a mood disorder characterised by at least two weeks of persistent feelings of sadness, low self-esteem and a decreased interest in enjoyable and normal day-to-day activities. Depression severely affects how we think and perform our daily duties and activities such as working, eating, sleeping and taking part in enjoyable activities such as hobbies. Depression can often be accompanied by feelings of resentment, guilt, and helplessness over a particular situation. These feelings, in turn, can trigger feelings of overwhelming anger which, if not controlled, can cause negative behaviour such as self-harm, destroying property and harming others. This worksheet will help you resolve the feelings of underlying anger so that you can better regulate your mood.
