Depression is a common and very serious mental disorder that has a negative effect on how one feels, behaves, acts and thinks. Sadness and bouts of blue are familiar feelings for everyone but when the problem persists, affecting one’s day to day lifestyle, it could be depression.

What is Depression?

Depression is characterized by the unique trait of perpetual sadness and the feeling that life is not worth living. Depression invariably finds a way to affect every facet of one’s life – be it professional or personal.

Although a very common mental disorder, it is not talked about openly and often remains unchecked. Depression is often considered the disease of the weak, preventing people from confiding regarding their mental health. It’s quite normal to feel sad or depressed at times but when it becomes intense and lasts for weeks and months, then it need medical attention.

According to the research conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), depression is the most common sickness globally.

However, as discouraging as the condition sounds, it is treatable with the correct medication, psychotherapy and a strong will power.
