Depression counseling | Instantly available for men or women
You can call depression coaches on CallTheONE via live video calling for questions about depression, how to deal with depression, or how to recognize depression with your partner.
It often happens that you think you are depressed but are just exhausted or often and easily get angry or learned to become a pessimist. On the other hand, many people deny all symptoms of depression. Get informed about the ins and outs of depression and know what steps to take.
If you can not make contact with your partner if he or she is depressed, the coaches specialized in depression do understand that and can be a listening ear for you.
How to help if your spouse is depressed?
If your spouse is depressed, you want to help. You give tips and advice, but nothing seems to matter. Often this has nothing to do with your advice itself, but with the nature of the depression.
A depression coach can explain why your well-intentioned advice does not work and gives you tips on what you can do. For instance:
- Be aware that your spouse is unlikely to be able to meet your expectations and needs
- Your spouse will forget things faster and you can support him or her by memorizing it yourself
- Give less advice because your partner is often unable to follow them up
- Stay in physical contact with each other and continue to talk to each other
- Show love and remember why you used to love each other
Depression does not just need time. Professional help is generally a condition for overcoming depression. If you are worried about your spouse, you can find help via depression coaches at TheONE. You can also talk and ask a question about depression. If they can not help, they can refer you to the right professional depression counselor.
How to take care of yourself when your spouse is depressed?
Sometimes you can best help your spouse with depression by first take care of yourself. If your partner is depressed, it also affects you. You might do not feel seen, and everything seems to be in the sign of your spouse.
If you keep adjusting yourself to the situation for a more extended period, you can lose yourself. Therefore, take care of yourself so that you can take care of your spouse in a better way. You can also call a life coach via TheONE for tips, advice, or coaching for yourself.
Symptoms of depression:
Only professional doctors and coaches can determine if someone is depressed. Some of the symptoms of depression are:
- Loss of energy despite enough sleep
- Less interaction with friends and little desire to leave the house
- You eat less healthy than before and sport less
- You do not know how long you can keep up with your partner while you feel love
- You react stressed to situations where you would otherwise react normally
Remember that you have never studied or learned to deal with a depressed spouse or were probably never depressed before. Therefore, call for professional depression assistance. Or at least talk to someone about it.

A depression, overstrained, or a burnout?

Often they can refer you to the right institutions that can give a diagnosis. However, this can be very expensive and a big step to take. TheONE is the first, most comfortable, and affordable step.
