Depression

Being depressed is more than feeling down for a day or two – it usually continues for weeks or months at a time. Depression can impact on people differently and can include a loss of interest in the things you used to enjoy, lack of motivation and ability to focus. There is a range of services and support available to help when you or someone you know is feeling depressed.
