You asked if memory loss can be caused by mental health disorder ?
Well, if you're talking about depression, yes it can. I speak from first hand
experience. I was severely depressed more than 10 years ago. During my depression I was constantly misplacing things. It seemed like I couldn't remember things for more than 2 minutes. I would put something down and five minutes later I'd forget where I put it. I found it very frustrating to say the least. So here is what helped. I always kept a certain item in the same place so that when I went to look for it , it would be in the same place, especially keys, my watch etc. I would write myself notes about when I took a certain medication. As I slowly got better, my memory improved, but it took time.
I still take an antidepressant everyday. Recently I started adding fish oil capsules to my list of daily supplements, so Omega 3 which is something ones body does not make naturally. The kind I take is called VitaFishOil.
They are so easy to take. They are orange flavoured, manufactured by a company called VitaTree Nutritionals. I bought them from the Shopping Channel. I bought a 3 month supply. You take 4 a day. Since taking these fish oil capsules not only has my mood improved but I seem to be able to think more clearly and this is supposed to be one of the benefits of fish oil or Omega 3. Also these fish oil capsules are mercury free. I highly recommend them. I hope you have found my suggestions helpful. Be well. Eve
