|Depression is a surprisingly common illness. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association (2015), around 8% of adults will experience depression at some point in their life.
Common symptoms of depression include sadness, loss of interest in favorite activities, feelings of worthlessness, loss of energy, aches and pains, changes in sleep or weight, loss of appetite or overeating, restlessness, and difficulty concentrating. Depression often results in social isolation.
If you think you are struggling with depression, reach out for help. Depression is treatable. Options include accessing a medical doctor who can diagnose depression, and provide medications to help improve mood, energy, and sleep. Lifestyle changes, such as exercise, nutrition, and reaching out to social supports can make a big difference. Counselling can help by identifying what is causing and maintaining depression, overcoming isolation, teaching new coping strategies, and helping you to create a plan towards health.
