Depression is a mental health condition that causes you to feel low for a prolonged period of time
Most people go through periods of feeling down. However, when you are depressed these feelings continue for weeks or months, rather than for a few days. Often with depression there will be physical symptoms too, tiredness, problems with sleeping, no appetite, lack of sex drive and possibly aches and pains.
Whilst it is normal to feel stress, anxiety or low mood during difficult times in life. These feelings usually improve after a short period of time rather than being a sign of depression.
Often family members may also have suffered with depression. However, it is possible to become depressed for no obvious reason.
