Unipolar depression takes long in an individual for a period of upto 6 months and deploys a state of sadness in them (Comer & Comer, 2018). In most cases, several individuals do not seek any treatment while just a few go for treatment. Some of the symptoms would range from emotional, motivational, behavioral, cognitive, and physical (Comer & Comer, 2018). Comparatively, bipolar depression varies from very low lows and high highs, called depression and mania respectively (Comer & Comer, 2018). Mania makes the victim to have a lot of energy making them feel more powerful. Bipolar depression also makes victims feel intense sadness and may display symptoms similar to emotional, motivational, behavioral, cognitive, and physical effects. The two disorders are similar as they both display the five areas mentioned above besides effects of being depressed.
Treatment of these disorders differs from person to person based on the severity of the problem. In some lucky cases, there are those with unipolar depression that just heal naturally and would not experience another depressive episode. However, nonmedication treatments is often an option for unipolar individuals, cognitive-behavioral therapy can be done for individual with unipolar depression. In cases that need treatment, medication and therapy helps to deal with intense depressive episodes. Therapists can work closely with patients and help them change their way of thinking.
