What is depression?

Everyone experiences times when they feel low, but these feelings naturally pass. If these feelings last a long time, keep coming back or are interfering with your life, it could be a sign of depression. Depression is not something you can ‘snap out of’ quickly, but it can be treated.

Depression is common, around 1 in 10 of us will experience it, anyone can have it, at any age.
