People experiencing mental health issues such as depression, may find it hard to get out of bed in the morning. Major depression leads to the feeling of powerless, therefore, energy levels will be low.
Victimhood is also a persistent state of feeling victimized, either through loss of a sense of self-worth and security, or feelings of negativity and vulnerability.
At Star Point Counseling center, therapy can help those who experience a lasting state of learned helplessness or victimhood by exposing the real causes of the issues.
