How to manage depressionLow moods usually pass, but what about when you feel sad for weeks, months or longer?
Lots of us live with depression day in, day out. It affects 1 in 5 of us at some point in our lives, so you’re not alone.
Often, your symptoms might seem physical, not mental, and sometimes other people might notice something’s wrong before you do. Common symptoms include fatigue and sleep problems, loss of interest in things you once enjoyed, changes in appetite and weight and, feelings of worthlessness or guilt.
Depression is a treatable health condition, so if you’re feeling this way you can get help. Read our guide to help you understand some of the causes of depression, what it can look like, how it can make you feel, and some of the treatment options that are available.
