Depression can happen to anyone. One in 20 Australians are affected by depression every year. It is important to understand the signs and symptoms of depression, how they appear in different people, and where to go for help.

We can all feel "downcast" & # 39; and being sad sometimes is a normal response to the events of life. It is part of what makes us human. Sometimes we just feel "blue" for no apparent reason.

People often misuse the term & # 39; depression & # 39; to describe these transient feelings after the loss and during difficult times.

Our sadness and depressive feelings usually resolve over time. However, people with clinical depression may become irritable, lose interest in things and have difficulty coping with them.

Clinical depression is more than the occasional low mood.
If you find yourself feeling intense, sad or depressed for more than two weeks, and they begin to affect the way you live, it is important to find help.

There are many effective treatments for depression and you may feel better.

It is not always easy to know if someone else is experiencing depression.

Sometimes, changes in mood and behavior occur slowly, and it is easy to overlook. People do not always tell us their thoughts and how they feel, especially if they are depressed and worried.

If you think someone you know could be depressed and does not want to talk about it:

Explain your concerns and encourage them to see their doctor.
Check regularly with them and make sure they are receiving support.

The signs and symptoms of depression can be physical or emotional. You may recognize some of these symptoms of depression in yourself or in someone you know.

Having one or two of these symptoms may not necessarily indicate depression, but it is a good idea to check with your GP.

You could be feeling:

Sad, tearful, anxious or irritable.
desperate and bad with yourself
alone and isolated
Exhausted
guilty
angry.
You may be thinking:

& # 39; My problems are too hard to solve & # 39;
& # 39; Life is very hard & # 39;
& # 39; Everything will go wrong & # 39;
I'm not good & # 39;
& # 39; Everything is my fault & # 39;
Maybe you are having changes in:

motivation
Ability to find pleasure and pleasure in things.
Sleep quality (sleeping a lot, waking up a lot or insomnia)
Appetite or weight
interest in sex
Concentration and remembering things
Drinking or using drugs
If you have been feeling these signs and symptoms for more than two weeks, be sure to get help from a health professional such as your GP.

There are several different types of depression. Some may go away alone, but others need treatment.

There are many effective ways to help depression, such as exercise, counseling and medication.

Remember, you can feel better.

    1. I have said everything you just said in this video. I have thought the same things you mentioned you were thinking in this video. I love you.

    2. I'm in a similar position. playing the waiting game until the meds kicks in. what helps me a bit, is that even when I'm in agony, I look back a year ago, and see that I improved. even if it's just a bit. I'm making small progress. πŸ’•you're not alone.

    3. "What do you say to someone other than 'Don't worry about me, Ill be fine?'"

      I've learnt to say "Help me, I'm not okay."

    4. I can relate to that. I'm going through depression right now. I don't know if there's anything I can say to help, but know that you're not alone❀️

    5. I think the hardest thing about it is I can't help. I can't help and I wish I could. I can't even help myself. I don't even have anything to say cuz I know nothing I say will make it better, or take away the pain. I'm so sorry you have to go through this shit. I love you hugs β™‘

    6. I am really sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time right now. Also your dog/baby is so adorable! I know my cat is my baby too. I call him my fur baby. Much love ❀ Keeping you in my thoughts and on my heart always.

    7. I hear you πŸ’– You are despondent. It hurts to see you this way. I've been there. There are no definitive answers right now… Get your case reopened sweetheart so that someone is proactively checking up on you. Hospital is always there if you need it but the sooner you can break/reverse the downward spiral the outcome will be better. You need the external emotional support and validation right now. You will make good choices lovely πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Keeping you close in mind and heart xoxoxo
