Mental health Depression

Depression is not just a phase of feeling down. When youíre depressed, you experience a range of intense symptoms that last weeks or months.

The illness affects your moods and your sleep. It steals your appetite, your interests and ability to concentrate. It can make you feel as though your life isnít worth living. These symptoms reflect a change in the neurochemistry of your brain.

Depression can sneak up on children, adolescents, and adults. And sometimes they donít even realize they have it.
