Is there a feeling you can't shake, like a heavy grey cloud perpetually hovering above you? You used to enjoy things, but now everything feels pointless. Maybe you're constantly tired, even after a good night's sleep. Perhaps you've lost interest in activities you once loved, or find yourself withdrawing from friends and family. These could be signs of depression.


Depression is a common but serious mood disorder. It's more than just feeling sad or blue for a short while. It can significantly impact your daily life, making it difficult to work, go to school, or even take care of yourself.

But you don't have to go through this alone. Depression is highly treatable. With the right support, you can find your way back to feeling happy, hopeful, and engaged with life again.
