Think. feel. act. Depression.

We all have times when our mood is low, and we're feeling sad or miserable about life. Usually, these feelings pass in due course.

 

But if the feelings are interfering with your life and don't go away after a couple of weeks, or if they come back over and over again for a few days at a time, it could be a sign that you're experiencing depression.

 

In its mildest form, depression can mean just being in low spirits. It doesn't stop you from leading your normal life but makes everything harder to do and seem less worthwhile. At its most severe, depression can be life-threatening because it can make you feel suicidal.
