Depression is increasingly common.

What is it?


What is it?


Everyone feels 'down in the dumps',
sad or 'low' at some times. That is a normal part of life. People sometimes
describe themselves as 'depressed' when what they mean is that they are feeling
a bit down. Depression is where these feelings are severe, or long lasting.


When symptoms go on for more than two
weeks, or if a person feels suicidal or has thoughts about suicide, medical
help should be sought urgently.


Depression is increasingly common.
Significant life events can trigger periods of depression…exam or work stress,
family turmoil, or concerns around identity or sexual orientation are all types
of thing that can be triggers. Hormonal changes, such as around adolescence,
pregnancy or menopause can also contribute to depression.
