What is Depression?

Depression is a disorder that affects your mood and causes frequent feelings of sadness or loss of interest, and can lead to many different mental and physical hardships. There is usually no immediate cure and will probably take long term counseling

Signs and Symptoms

  • Feelings of sadness
  • Bursts of anger even over small issues
  • Not sleeping enough or sleeping too much
  • Lack of energy
  • Anxiety
  • Thoughts of suicide or self harm
  • Etc.


There is no immediate cure for depression. Depression will usually take long term counseling and support from friends and family. Avoiding help is the worst way to go about dealing wit depression because you'll end up facing it alone. Talk to a counselor if feel like you may be depressed

Overall information

Over all the long term effect is that with some help you'll be able to learn to control your depression. Because depression is a disorder, it never really does away you can just learn to control it.

Personal statement
