What is Depression?
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. While everyone might occasionally feel sad or blue, a clinical depression (doctors call it major depression) does not pass, interferes with daily life and can cause pain for both the patient and those around them. In addition to persistent sadness and low mood, people with depression lose interest in things and people around them. Depression can cause trouble with sleep, appetite changes and loss of energy. Concentration and focus can also be affected. Sometimes, people with depression feel hopeless, helpless and even weary of life.
