Throughout our lives statistics show that 2 out of 3 of us will at some point experience some form of depression. Depression is a disturbance in our mood where we may feel particularly unhappy, discouraged, lonely, or negative towards ourselves.

Depression may range from the very mild, moderate, to severe forms, depending upon the symptoms associated with each condition and the extent the condition interferes with our everyday functioning.

Some of the symptoms of depression include depressed mood, lack of interest or pleasure, hopelessness or thoughts of suicide, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, diminished motivation and ability to concentrate, and disturbances in sleep and/or appetite.

One productive step to take when coping with depression is to make an appointment with a trained counsellor to evaluate the nature of the depression and the most appropriate methods and strategies to help deal with it.
