Depression Symptoms


Do you struggle to get out of bed in the mornings? Do you often wonder, what is the point? Depression can make you feel hopeless, sad and tearful continuously for weeks or months at a time.  Throughout our lives we may have one period of depression or several. Depression can be mild, moderate or severe and symptoms can vary between people.  A guide to the severity of the depression may be determined by the number of symptoms a person experiences. In severe cases some people may feel suicidal or choose to self-harm. 


Depression can be triggered by some medical conditions, medications, hormonal changes, lack of sunlight or stressful life events such as divorce, loss of a job, bereavement, bullying or financial worries. Some studies suggest depression may be linked to a head injuries, hormones, thyroid problems, B12 deficiency, alcohol misuse or family genes. Depression can also arise from prolonged anxiety and may include symptoms of anxiety. 

The Office of National Statistics estimate that the likelihood of adults aged 16 and upwards between the dates of 22.09.20 to 3.10.21 having depressive symptoms is 52,160,924.
