Depression

Everyone feels sad from time to time, but Depression is more than just “feeling blue” for a day or two. Depression is a persistent sadness or loss of interest that doesn’t go away; it’s a disorder of the brain that can affect the way a person thinks, acts and feels. Some symptoms may include:

  • Feeling hopeless, helpless, or worthless
  • Feeling irritable or anxious
  • Having decreased energy
  • Having difficulty concentrating
  • Feeling restless
  • Appetite change
  • Thoughts of death or suicide
