Depression

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.
