What is Depression?

March 1, 2024


At some point in our lives, we may feel overwhelmed, sad, or hopeless. It’s normal to have such emotions, especially during challenging situations like losing a loved one, financial difficulties, or a breakup. However, when these feelings persist and interfere with our daily activities, they may be symptoms of depression.

If you’re struggling with depression, it can be challenging to find a way out of the darkness. It may feel like nothing can help, and you’re stuck in a cycle of negative thoughts and emotions.


Depression is a mental health issue characterized by persistent sadness, loss of interest in activities, and a feeling of worthlessness or guilt. It’s a serious condition that affects a person’s ability to function in daily life. Depression can cause physical symptoms, such as fatigue, changes in appetite, and sleep disturbances.


Depression can have various causes, including environmental and psychological factors. Imbalances in neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, can also contribute to depression. Additionally, stressful life events, such as abuse, neglect, or a traumatic event, can trigger depression.


Depression symptoms can vary among individuals. Common symptoms include:

?            Persistent sadness or a feeling of emptiness

?            Loss of interest or pleasure in activities

?            Changes in appetite or weight

?            Fatigue or loss of energy

?            Insomnia or oversleeping

?            Feelings of worthlessness or guilt

?            Difficulty concentrating or making decisions

?            Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide
