Disability and depression. A disabled man confined to a wheelchair gazes out of his window. Depression is a common consequence of disability, especially if the patient's deteriora- tion is sudden or if the disability restricts social contact. Severe depression causes insomnia, loss of appetite and suicidal thoughts. Treatment includes antidepressant drugs and counselling.
