It’s natural and quite common to feel sad sometimes, but depression, (or Major Depressive Disorder), refers to persistent depressed feelings, lasting longer than two weeks. Primary symptoms of depression may include: hopelessness, irritability, trouble sleeping, weight loss or gain, loss if interest in things you used to enjoy, difficulty concentrating or remembering things and thoughts of death or suicide/suicide attempts. Several types of psychotherapies exist for treating depression. Finding a therapist is a great first step in finding ways to help treat and alleviate symptoms of depression.

Often times depression and anxiety go hand in hand. Like anxiety, depression can stem from not truly understanding what one is feeling. When we push down our emotions and do not allow ourselves to feel, or sometimes the opposite happens when we allow our feelings to take over, we can experience depression. Working together to discover where the depression is stemming from can work towards healing.
