Feeling sad, moody/negative or low occasionally is normal, but when those feelings are with us for long periods of time (weeks and months) it can become depression. Depression is more than just a low mood – it’s a serious illness that has an impact on both our physical and mental health. It can affect people at any age, sometimes with no apparent external causes.
Depression becomes unhealthy when the negative thoughts become persistent and are around for long periods of time, affecting the person most of the time impacting on their work, their relationships and the overall way they view and relate to their environment.
For a person experiencing depression they can appear lazy or not making an effort. Often they feel numb and worthless and despite their attempts to fight their depression, it consumes them.
