What is Depression?


Depression (also known as depressive disorder) is mood disorder that negatively affects how you feel and act. Sufferers of depression may show a lack of interest in life and feel low for long periods of time. Whilst, at times, most people get sad as a reaction to the many challenges that life throws at us, clinical depression does not go away. When the feeling continues for days and months, it could be a sign that it is depression.

Symptoms can include: a sad mood that lasts for longer than usual, trouble sleeping or too much sleep, feelings of worthlessness, changes of appetite, a loss of interest in activities that were previously enjoyed and thoughts of suicide and death.

Fortunately, depression is a treatable condition, and given that it is common is society, there has been lots of research conducted on the best ways to treat individuals with the disorders.
