“What is depression?

About 12 per cent of the population experience depression severe enough to require treatment at some time or other in their life.”

Powell Trevor, (2000), The Mental Health Handbook, pg73

If you are reading this page, then perhaps you have been struggling with your mood recently and wondering what is happening.  Or maybe you have identified some negative patterns that have been repeating over a short or longer period of time.  Sometimes we know something is wrong, but we just cannot put our finger on it, and if we are psychologically challenged or struggling, then we are not in a good place to identify what the underlying issues are that are causing the symptoms being experienced.

As individuals we all have different life experiences and depression is no different in as much as we can experience low mood or depression in different ways, however, there is usually a significant degree of sadness or feeling low in mood.  Other characteristics of depression may include sleeplessness, thus feeling tired, unmotivated where there maybe issues around decision making, loss of interest, appetite changes, and then at what may feel like a difficult time in your life; where you really want to make the right decision to get help, you may find yourself googling and researching therapy, only to find that there are many different therapies at your disposal that leave you feeling even more confused and thus overwhelmed.
