Why do I need information on depression?
“I usually only cared about being with my friends, dating, going to films, maybe experiencing new stuff… school was an obligation, but, ok, I would do my part… parents and teachers would be happy with me and tolerant enough..."
“...Now, I just want to be left alone...”
If someone just wants to be left alone, feels down, and can't manage their usual activities, these could be signs of depression.
Depression is a mental health disorder. This means that depression is an illness. Both brain and body will be affected by this illness. However, it is important to keep in mind that depression is treatable.
