Depression is a complex mental health condition that affects an estimated 300 million people worldwide. It is thought to affect roughly one in six people at some point in their lifetime, and according to the World Health Organization, is one of the world’s leading causes of disability.

Depression is more than just feeling sad or down. It is a persistent and pervasive mood disorder that can significantly impair one’s ability to function in daily life. It affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves, often leading to a sense of hopelessness, emptiness, and worthlessness.

Symptoms range from relatively minor to severe. It can hit indiscriminately and has a negative influence in all areas of a sufferer’s life: work, relationships, and physical wellbeing. Recognising the signs and symptoms of depression is essential for early intervention and treatment.

Some common indicators include:

    → Extreme or extended feeling of sadness, feeling tearful.
    → Decline in interest with life, no motivation to engage in hobbies.
    → Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, emptiness, or guilt.
    → Loss or gain in weight, changes in appetite or eating habits.
    → Changes in sleeping. Too much or too little, and insomnia.
    → Withdrawing from family, friends, loved ones and social situations.
    → Feeling more than usually irritable or angry.
    → Thoughts of harming oneself or suicide.

    It’s important to note that individuals may experience depression differently, and not everyone will exhibit all these symptoms.

    There are many different types of depression, some of the most common include:

      Major depressive disorder (MDD): This is the most common form of depression, characterised by persistent low mood and loss of interest or pleasure in activities.
      Persistent depressive disorder also known as dysthymia: Dysthymia involves chronic, long-term depression lasting for two years or more. Symptoms may be less severe than MDD but still interfere with daily functioning.
      Bipolar disorder: Formerly known as manic-depressive illness, bipolar disorder involves cycling between periods of extreme highs (mania) and lows (depression).
      → Seasonal affective disorder (SAD): SAD is a type of depression that occurs seasonally, typically during the winter months when there is less sunlight.
      Postpartum depression: Experienced by some women after giving birth, postpartum depression involves intense feelings of sadness, anxiety, and exhaustion.

      Depression is a treatable condition, and several approaches can help individuals manage their symptoms effectively. Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy; medication – antidepressant medicines; support groups; lifestyle changes including meditation, light exercise, healthy diet, regular sleep, and stress reduction.

      In some cases, depression may be severe and resistant to typical treatment approaches. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a form of neuromodulation. A non-invasive, non-convulsive method of brain stimulation therapy that has proved effective in the treatment of neurological and mental health conditions such as depression. Studies have found that TMS is particularly effective for treatment-resistant major depressive disorder.

      In some instances, residential rehab treatment, also known as inpatient treatment, may be the best option. Residential treatment programmes offer a structured and supportive environment where individuals can receive intensive therapy and medical supervision, as well as peer support, reducing the sense of isolation and loneliness.

      Depression is a common but serious mental health condition that requires prompt attention and appropriate treatment. By recognising the signs and symptoms of depression and seeking professional help, individuals can take proactive steps towards recovery and regain control of their lives.

      I wanted to drop you a quick message to thank you very much for your help and support during my stay within Ibiza Calm. Each and every person in the house was important in his own way in my recovery. I feel very grateful to all of you. It’s not always easy but it is achievable. My life is way much better than it was before coming and I am definitely a better version of myself now.


      My son attended two rehab facilities before going to Ibiza Calm. Ibiza Calm, however, was exactly what it professed to be. They worked with my son as a vital ally in his recovery process, not as a person to be broken and fixed according to a set regimen, who would be blamed and shamed if he did not respond appropriately to the facility’s treatment protocol and schedule. The therapist assigned to my son struck the right balance between allowing him to move at a pace at which he was comfortable and pushing him to keep a challenging pace of self-discovery and recovery. My son has come out of this treatment calm and self-aware; whereas he finished the other programs angry and even traumatized. My son has only been 6 weeks out of Ibiza Calm, so the long-term success in remaining sober remains to be seen, but the change in his attitude and behavior is so profound that I have great hope for the future for the first time in years. I recommend Ibiza Calm without reservation, rather with overwhelming gratitude.


      I was at Ibiza calm from the 4th of July to the 29th of July 2020, I am 23 years of age and was in a horrific place in my life From drink and cocaine. My girlfriend is pregnant and outright had enough of my selfish behaviour. I was really ready to start my recovery, I settled in fantastic they have amazing staff so helpful and caring, the food is unbelievable thanks to Danny the main man in the kitchen, the grounds are beautiful, the bedrooms are very nice I overall found my stay amazing. 10/10 couldn’t fault it many thanks Francis.


      My husband was in another rehab clinic in the UK 6 months ago, which I wasn’t totally convinced by not only experiences of others but the surroundings/ Set up and approach to it .. he is only 2 weeks into his journey at IBIZA calm and it’s the first time in a long time I can finally hear happiness in his voice, and motivation on his healing / sobriety journey , commitment to his inner and outer health.. I know this is just the beginnings But both billy and Luca have been extremely helpful and helpful to myself ! If your looking for yourself or a loved one, 100 look no further this is the type of place someone who is suffering needs- the surroundings, the programme, the environment , and amazing team!


      I can’t thank the team at Ibiza Calm enough. I had a friend who spent time with them and what they have done is amazing. From the therapy to the meetings have all set him up for moving forward. Once he left he was not just left and has a fantastic aftercare system in place. Thank You.
