Depression is a very common condition that can be triggered by traumatic events or appear for seemingly no reason, often involving a combination of biological and socio-emotional factors. It can create feelings like loneliness, fear, guilt, and worthlessness. Sadly, many people struggle with the condition on their own, for months or even years, before getting professional help. If you suspect you may be experiencing depression do get in touch with myself or another healthcare professional. Depression can be effectively treated, but only you can take the first step.
