About Depression

Feeling sadness is a natural human emotion.  It’s when you feel stuck in that sadness that it becomes problematic.  Chronic low mood can be accompanied with a loss of interest in things you usually enjoy such as socializing, hobbies, and exercise.  If your sadness feels like a raincloud dampening your relationships, professional life and/or academics, then reaching out for help may be beneficial. 

Take inventory of your symptoms. The following are common symptoms that accompany depressed mood:

  • Feeling tired throughout the day
  • Increased or decreased appetite 
  • Increased or decreased sleep patterns
  • Increased irritability
  • Moving more slowly 
  • Feeling fidgety and on edge 
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Low motivation
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Having thoughts of self-harm
