Struggling with depression
Most people have times when they feel unhappy, sad or hopeless. These feelings might last for a few hours, days or longer. But when these feelings continue for extended periods of time, it is an indication that you could be depressed.
Depression is not about being weak. It is not just a case of needing to be made of sterner stuff. It is real and it is a recognised mental health concern.
Depression can be experienced as mild, moderate or severe. It might interrupt your ability to live life as you want or it could leave you feeling like you want to end your life.
If you are thinking of ending your life there are organisations and crisis teams who can support you. Please click on the link below for more information.
