Are you concerned that you or someone you love has depression?
Depression is more than just a low mood – it's a serious mental health condition (mental illness) that has an impact on both physical and mental health. Possible causes include a combination of biological, psychological and social sources of distress
Depression causes depressed people to feel down most of the time. They usually feel intense sadness, frequently cry, and may suffer appetite and sleep disturbance. Your depression may be general or a response to a particular situation. It may also be part of a grief reaction. Sometimes relentless stress can result in a reactive depression.
