Depression and depressive disease or depressive disorder are considered mood disorder which causes the individual to experience emotions of sadness, disinterest and often lethargy. This has a significant and debilitating effect on how someone thinks, feels, behaves, and interacts with the world around them. This can be so profound that even day-to-day tasks become overwhelming and ideas of suicide creep into our thoughts as if we should just give up on life.

It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease your ability to function at work and home.

  • Feeling sad or having a depressed mood

  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed

  • Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain unrelated to dieting

  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much

  • Loss of energy or increased fatigue

  • Increase in purposeless physical activity (e.g., inability to sit still, pacing, handwringing) or slowed movements or speech (these actions must be severe enough to be observable by others)
