depressionLife can be difficult, and there are many stressors that contribute to feeling overwhelmed. If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be experiencing depression. Signs of depression include a sudden change in mood, withdrawing from family and friends, lack of interest in activities you previously enjoyed, changes in appetite, feelings of worthlessness, difficulty concentrating and changes in sleeping patterns. Another sign is a feeling of sadness that does not go away. There is no single cause of depression and it can occur for a variety of reasons. Depression can happen at any age and sometimes life events, such as trauma, loss of a loved one, or a difficult relationship, may cause you to feel depressed.
