What is Depression?

Depression is a mental health disorder that can affect a person's mood, thoughts, and behavior. It can lead to feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities. Depression can also cause physical symptoms, such as changes in appetite and sleep patterns. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you experience persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities you used to enjoy, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, or thoughts of self-harm or suicide, it's time to see a mental health professional. A doctor or therapist can diagnose depression and provide treatment options. Treatment for depression can include medication, therapy, or a combination of both. Lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise and a healthy diet, can also help manage symptoms of depression.
