Symptoms of Depression

As well as low mood, depression symptoms can include feeling very tearful, irritable or angry. You may lose interest in things you previously enjoyed or feel tired and have less energy.You may also lose concentration, self-confidence, appetite and motivation.

You may feel isolated, yet also want to get away from others. You may feel hopeless and that and others don’t even like you. You may have physical aches or pains. It can also be common if you have depression to have symptoms of anxiety, also.

What causes depression?

There’s not one single cause of depression. One reason for becoming depressed can be a change in your life, such as divorce, losing a job, or having a baby. Disputes and arguments or a breakdown in relationships can cause depression. Grief can trigger it, too. Lack of sunlight during the winter can be a contributing factor. Sometimes there doesn’t appear to be a reason for your depression.
