Depression Symptoms

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety or feeling “empty”
  • Feeling hopeless or expecting the worse to happen
  • Feeling guilty, worthless or helpless
  • Being irritable or restless
  • Losing interest in activities or hobbies that you used to enjoy
  • Feeling tired, fatigued or run down
  • Not being able to concentrate or make decisions

  • Eating too much or having no appetite
  • Persistent aches, pains, headaches, cramps and stomach disorders that don’t go away with treatment
  • Thoughts of suicide or suicide attempts

Depression can happen to anyone, any time.

  • Depression is more common in women than men
  • Men report more symptoms related to fatigue, irritability, loss of interest in activities and sleep problems
  • Men may turn to alcohol or drugs to cope
  • Depression in seniors may be overlooked because their symptoms are less obvious
  • Children may pretend to be sick, refuse to go to school, cling to parents or worry about death

Depression Causes

  • Genetics
  • Biochemical imbalances
  • Environmental factors, such as the loss of a loved one or major life changes
  • Psychological factors

Depression Diagnosis and Treatment

If you or someone you love shows signs of depression, talk to your doctor.

  • Depression treatments are very effective, especially if begun early
  • Certain medications and medical conditions can cause symptoms of depression
  • Anti-depressants help normalize the brain’s chemicals that regulate mood
  • Serotonin reuptake inhibitors and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors may have fewer side effects than older antidepressants
  • You may need to try several medications before you find one that works
  • Your doctor may suggest therapy as part of your treatment

If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, call 911.
