What is depression?
Depression is a common, but severe mental health illness that can affect your mood, thoughts, and actions. Everyone experiences depression differently, but it generally causes feelings of discouragement, sadness, hopelessness, and disinterest in opportunity among other sensations. Almost everyone experiences these feelings over a short period of time as a result of a difficult situation like losing a job. However, if these feelings last for long periods of time and start to affect your daily life, they may be signs of a depressive disorder. If you are finding it difficult to carry on with daily activities because of depression, we are here for you. Contact us today and consult with our medical personnel to find out how we can support you.
