More and more people are struggling with
feelings of depression. There is not one
single reason for feeling depressed. It
could be that changes in life have happened
such as divorce, losing a job, or having a
baby. Even a lack of sunshine can contribute
(this is known as Seasonal Affective
Disorder – SAD). Sometimes people who
struggle with depression have not taken care
of themselves and have ‘burnt out’ due to
work and/or family commitments, and
sometimes there may be no exact reason.
There is one thing that you can be sure of and that is ‘You’re not alone’.
When people are going through
they can feel:
low in mood
irritable or angry
loss interest in things previously enjoyed
have less energy
loss of concentration
lack of confidence
lack of sleep
