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.
