What is depression? Everyone feels low at some time during their life, but most people get better gradually and their sad mood fades. However, for some these feelings of depression linger and escalate. What are the signs of depression?
Symptoms of depression include:
- ongoing sad feelings
- low self-esteem
- anger and aggression
- depressive mood
- lack of energy
- problems sleeping
- guilt or remorse
Causes of depression can include:
- school bullying
- conflicts at home
- body chemistry
Depression can also follow a long illness, or it can stem from outside circumstances such as bereavement.
Worryingly, depression is on the increase among teenagers and young people. They need help overcoming depression before they develop severe depression symptoms which could then become a long-term problem in their lives.
