What is Depression?
Depression is a low mood that lasts for a long time, and affects your everyday life.
In its mildest form, depression can mean just feeling low. It doesn’t stop you leading your normal life but makes everything harder to do and seem less worthwhile. At its most severe, depression can be life-threatening because it can make you feel suicidal.
We all have times when our mood is low, and we’re feeling sad or miserable about life. Usually these feelings pass in due course. But if these feelings are interfering with your daily life and don’t go away after a couple of weeks, or if they come back over and over again for a few days at a time, it could be a sign that you’re experiencing depression.
