Everyone can feel down, but if these feelings last more than a few days, keep coming back frequently or start to affect your work, interests or feelings towards your family/friends, then it could be a sign of depression.
Some of the symptoms of depression are low mood or sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, sleep disturbances, change in appetite, difficulty concentrating, slowed functioning (e.g. thinking or talking), lower sex drive, less energy, loss of self-confidence, thoughts of death or suicide and feeling guilty.
There are many reasons why people get depressed. It could be due to distressing experiences, life events, on-going stress, biology or negative core beliefs such as ‘I’m not good enough’. Depression is often caused by a combination of these factors.
