What is Depression?


Depression is a mood disorder that causes constant sadness and loss of interest. Depression is also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression.  

The feelings, thoughts and behaviors of individuals suffering from this condition are affected and various emotional or physical problems may arise due to this. There may be problems doing normal daily activities, and sometimes life may seem not worth living. 


Depression is not just a feeling of malaise or momentary weakness. Depression is also not such a simple problem that it can be solved in an instant. Depression is a treatable medical condition that requires treatment. This treatment process may take a long time in some cases.  

Everyone goes through periods of not feeling well emotionally and psychologically from time to time. These periods generally last for a certain period of time, depending on the intensity of the troubles and sorrows you experience. However, if your bad periods last longer than two or three weeks and prevent you from doing many of the things you do in your daily life properly; this condition is called depression (major depressive disorder).
