Consequences Of Untreated Depression
You don’t have to handle it by yourself, there are options to help in depression in Victoria
It is estimated that nearly 2 out of every 3 people struggling with depression don’t seek or receive treatment for their condition.
When left untreated, depression can ruin your life.
Clinical depression increases the risk of substance abuse, destroys relationships, interferes with your ability to excel at work, and makes you more vulnerable to certain medical conditions.
For example, people with depression are more likely to develop heart disease and are more likely to die following a heart attack than people without the condition. Even more troubling is the fact that depression is the cause of two-thirds of suicides, especially in men.

At Sync Therapy, we see depression as a brain disease and not a “mental illness”.
We look at the brain as a computer, it has hardware and software. We perceive “mental illness” as a hardware and software problem.
The hardware consists of your blood vessels, nerve cells, and neurochemistry such as serotonin and dopamine. The software consists of the programming, it’s our thoughts, perceptions, and social connection.
Since depression isn’t caused by one thing, our approach can help you from all aspects.
We use a holistically science-based approach that includes nutrition, exercise, supplements, and simple techniques to help you limit the negative thoughts.
We’re able to provide resources for specific therapies that may be of benefit to you. We design an approach that works with your current circumstances – motivation, finances, and life.
