Depression is one of the most common psychological problems, affecting nearly everyone at some point in their lives.
Depression is a psychological condition that changes how you think and feel, and also affects your social behaviour.
Depression will also affect your sense of physical well-being.
However, once identified, most people with depression can be successfully treated.
Recognizing depression is the first step in treating it.
Nearly two-thirds of depressed people do not get proper treatment because the symptoms are not recognized as depression.
Depressed people are seen as weak or lazy.
Social stigma causes people to avoid needed treatment.
The symptoms are so disabling that the people affected cannot reach out for help.
Many symptoms are misdiagnosed as physical problems.
Individual symptoms are treated, rather than the underlying cause.
With proper treatment, nearly 80% of those with depression can make significant improvement in their mood and life adjustment.
A serious loss, chronic illness, relationship problems, work stress, family crisis, financial setback, or any unwelcome life change can trigger a depressive episode.
