  State the topic you have selected for your Teaching Project. (Please select from the list provided in the Teaching Project guidelines located in Module 4.)   Describe in detail why this is an important topic for patient education. Use evidence from the textbook, lesson or an outside scholarly source to support your rationale.The education process will be carried out on depression as a health condition. Depression is a health condition that affected people of all ages and may influence the quality of life of patients in the day to day living. The issue affected people who are suffering from other health conditions or those that are living in the community but are faced with issues of concern on the need for improvement of their living standard. The education on the issue of depression has been selected because there is a need for people to have an understanding of how to manage or prevent the condition. As such, the condition has various complications that could impact the lives of patients such as the loss of gaining weight as affirmed by Zhao et al. (2016). The other complications that the condition will cause are the increase in risks of the person getting panic attacks, problems with their relationship with the others in the community, and the increase in the issue of isolation. Gavin et al. (2011) depict that issues of depression as well as increase risks of one having suicidal thoughts and leading in cases of self-harm. As a result of the extensive complications that could be caused by the condition, there is a need for the people to be educated in ways of prevention and management after identification of the health concern. The focus is as well expected to help in the process of ensuring that patients have an understanding of the fact that an individual suffering from depression does not have to worry much provided they can manage their health standards…..(CONT)
