Depression

Depression is more than feeling sad. Depression consists of intense feelings of sadness, losing interest in things you enjoy, lack of energy, drive or motivation, inability to focus. The symptoms can linger for extended periods of time, recur and fluctuate during stressful life events, and affect an individual’s ability to function. Depression is a medical illness, not a sign of weakness, and it is treatable.
