What are the symptoms of Depression?
There are different types of depression but even within each type, there are so many different symptoms that a person can have.
A major myth about depression (and mental health illness/conditions) is that symptoms are only phycological. This is absolutely not true! There are both mental (phycological) and physical symptoms!
The main symptoms that tend to be common are:
Changes in Appetite
Changes in Sleep
Loss of Interest
Excessive Feelings of Worthlessness or Guilt
Recurrent Thoughts of Death or Suicide
Loss of Focus
Loss of Energy
