Most people feel sad or depressed at times. It’s a normal reaction to loss or some of life’s daily challenges.
But when sadness increases to intense sadness, or sadness for a prolonged period of time and keeps you from living your life, it may be something more than sadness. You could be suffering from clinical depression, which is treatable, if managed with professional help – and does not necessarily require medication.
Depression’s symptoms can vary greatly from person to person and may even change throughout the course of the illness. Adolescents or a child experiencing depression might appear irritable or agitated, symptoms which can easily be missed, watch for withdrawal from friends and family, or a drop in their performance at school,
Depression is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy, and the condition is highly treatable.
