What is Depression?​

Depression is a mood disorder that can cause a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest in any activity. It generally affects the way an individual feels, thinks, and behaves. It may lead to other emotional and physical problems too like, in some severe conditions, the person may feel hopeless and worthless. 

Occasional sadness is normal, but when this sadness, loss of energy, and loss of interest in activities continue for more than 2 weeks, then it’s a red flag that should not be ignored.
