What is depression?

If you have depression, you are likely to feel persistently unhappy, hopeless and lose interest in things you used to enjoy. The person who is experiencing depression may feel tired, less interested in socializing with their partner, or less interested in activities that they previously enjoyed together. Depression may also cause emotional changes, such as an increase in irritability.

It impacts how we feel, think and act. Depression affects people in different ways and can cause a wide variety of symptoms.  However low you are feeling now, please remember that depression is treatable.
