Depression is one of the most common mental health difficulties and can happen to anyone at any stage of their lives. It involves having a low mood or loss in interest and pleasure in activities.
Depression is different from regular fluctuations in everyday mood. It can affect various aspects of life including relationships with family and friends, work or school. If you experience mild levels of depression, you may still be able to carry on with daily life, but things may feel harder and less worthwhile. However, if you experience more severe levels of depression, you might struggle to get on with day-to-day activities.
Common symptoms of depression include:
- Low or sad mood.
- Feeling empty or numb.
- Restlessness, irritability, or agitation over minor issues.
- Hopelessness and despair.
- Feeling isolated and unable to relate to others.
- A lack of motivation and enthusiasm for things.
- Withdrawing from usually enjoyable activities.
- Feeling tired all the time.
- Difficulties with concentration.
- Changes in appetite or weight.
- Sleep difficulties.
- Thoughts about dying or suicide.
