DEPRESSION

What is Depression?

Feeling sad, or what we may call "DEPRESSED", happens to all of us. The sensation usually passes after a while. However, people with a depressive disorder - clinical depression - find that their state interferes with daily life.
 
For people with clinical depression, their normal functioning is undermined to such an extent that both they and those who care about them are affected by it.
