What Depression Looks Like
We all feel sad sometimes - it's a normal part of our emotional experiences. Sometimes, sadness can last longer than we expect and make us feel uncomfortable, preventing us from participating in things we enjoy or from functioning how we need to.
Depression may look like...
- Lack of interest
- Sleep problems
- Suicidal thoughts
- Changes in appetite
