True or False:
- Currently, have you been feeling depressed, sad, blue, or empty most days?
- Do you feel detached from your emotions?
- Have you lost interest or pleasure in your everyday activities?
If you answered yes/true to any of the questions above chances are you are experiencing some form of depression.
Depression can range from mild unhappiness that occurs periodically to unbearable chronic distress. It is considered more common among women than men, although recent research has found that many men struggle with depression, but express it differently than women. Depression is also becoming increasingly common in adolescents and children. Depression is generally characterized by a loss of interest in many or most activities, a lack of optimism about the future, and a general sense of dullness (which may include feelings of hopelessness and helplessness). A number of research studies have shown therapy to be very effective in treating depression.
