What is depression?
Depression can make you feel like you are chained down with nothing to do to make you happy.
Some people with depression will never get out of it without help. They need people to talk to. Don't be afraid to talk to people you know are depressed.
Some people show that they are happy, but really are not. You would have to know somebody well to know if they have depression.

There are many symptoms and ways to know if you have depression, or to know if someone you know does.
