What is depression?

Depression is a mood disorder that affects how a person feels, thinks, and handles daily activities. It’s more than just feeling sad or down for a short period; it can significantly impact a person’s ability to function and affect various aspects of life, including work, relationships, and physical health.

What are the signs of depression?

Signs of depression include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in participating in activities once enjoyed
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Sleep disturbances like insomnia or oversleeping
  • Fatigue or loss of energy
  • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt

What could be causing my depression?

Depression is a complex condition influenced by a combination of factors. Its causes can come from:

Biological factors

These include imbalances in neurotransmitters in the brain, changes in hormone levels, or genetics.

Psychological factors

Depression can result if trauma, stress, or difficult life events occur. These situations can trigger susceptible individuals.

Environmental factors

Persistent exposure to violence, neglect, abuse, or poverty can increase the risk of developing depression.
