Depression is a serious mental illness that affects one in 15 adults (6.7%) in any given year. One in six people will have experienced depression at one point in their life. In this video, we cover some of the common signs of depression including: change in sleep pattern, change in appetite, low self-esteem, lack of interest in previous activities (anhedonia), lack of energy, decrease self care, irritability, intrusive thoughts, self harm or suicidal thoughts. This video is not meant to be as a diagnosis, but if you relate to some of these signs, you might want to consider seeking professional help.
