Depression Awareness Week
What is Depression?

Depression is a state of low mood and an aversion to activity that can affect a person’s thoughts, behavior, feelings and physical well-being. It is not necessarily always a psychiatric disorder, as the symptoms can be associated with a number of physiological ailments. Depression is a frequent and normal reaction to certain life events, usually those related to change from a normal routine or comfort zone.
