Managing depression

Depression is typically characterised by persistent feelings of sadness that last for weeks or months. Symptoms can vary quite drastically from person to person, but generally, if you feel depressed, you feel sad and hopeless and you lose interest in the things you used to enjoy. Symptoms will often interfere with your work, home and social life.

  • Sadness or low mood

  • Thinking negatively about yourself or situations

  • Feeling hopeless or helpless

  • Low self esteem

  • Feeling emotional or crying

  • Feeling guilty

  • Irritable or unable to tolerate other people

  • No motivation or interest in things

  • Unable to make decisions

  • Feeling anxious or worried

  • Having suicidal thoughts or actually harming yourself

How depression affects you physically


  • Your mind feels foggy or unable to process information or situations

  • Sluggish feeling. Moving or speaking slowly

  • Changes in appetite or weight

  • Unexplained aches and pains
