Depression can take many forms from mild and situational, to long term and chronic. It is an illness that involves your body, your mood, and your thoughts. It can affect the way you eat and sleep, the way you feel about yourself and others, and can interfere with your daily life. Without treatment, depression can last for weeks, months, or even years. With treatment, you can soon be experiencing hope, pleasure, and the joys of life.

Maybe you are experiencing some of these signs of depression:

  • Persistent sad, anxious, or empty mood
  • Feelings of hopelessness or negativity
  • Feelings of guilt or worthlessness
  • Fatigue or decreased energy
  • Sleeping too little or sleeping too much
  • Restlessness or irritability
  • Isolating from others
  • Not being interested in the things you used to enjoy
